The police conducts outreach programme with the religious groups

The SAPS is still conducting community outreach programmes throughout the Province with the objective of strengthening partnership Policing with all the Community structures in the fight against crime.

On Sunday, 2017-12-17, the Police in Thohoyandou Cluster have conducted the outreach as part of the spiritual approach to Crime Prevention in reducing crime during this festive season.

The programme was mainly aimed at asking for the Devine intervention from God which was led by Major General Mamothethi from the National Head Office accompanied by the Thohoyandou Cluster Commander Major General Rosina Mulaudzi and the Cluster Management which was held at the Independent Apostolic Faith Mission Church in Lwamondo under the Vuwani Policing area.

During her address, the Cluster Commander Maj. General Mulaudzi has put more emphasises on the following:

Mob justice, Domestic related cases, Rape, Theft out of motor vehicle, Hitchhiking spots and Child neglect.

When giving the keynote address, Major General Mamothethi has appreciated the church congregants for their ongoing relationship between the church denominations and the police which is prevailing in this Cluster as part of the development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the community based crime prevention initiatives and she encouraged parents to take care of their children as they are soft targets in many various crimes.

When faith-based organisations, such as the churches work together, crime prevention can improve the quality of life for every community and its residents.

"We should all join hands in prayer asking for Divine intervention during this festive season but we must be mindful that prayer should be combined with action," concluded General Mamothethi.

Police Sunday will not be complete without rendering the item of preaching the word of God. That was an item rendered by the Church founder, Dr TA Mavhutha who also prayed for the Police and crime.
