EASTERN CAPE – In the recent months, South Africans were exposed to incidents on bullying among our youth in schools. Bullying constitutes a significant challenge to school safety while at the same time can have devastating consequences if not immediately tackled and addressed.
SAPS across Nelson Mandela Bay teamed up with non-governmental organisations (NGO’s), Community Policing Forums(CPF), sporting fraternities and youth structures in their policing precincts and conducted crime awareness programmes focusing on bullying, abuse of alcohol and drugs as well as teenage pregnancy. These events took place on 16 June 2021 with the youth as the targeted audience.
Investing in our youth today must start early so that the foundation of good morals and discipline are cemented for a brighter and positive future for our children.
