Bothasig SAPS recently surprised the children at the day care at Edgemead Primary school as part of their Safer Children program.

Sector Manager Leon Streicher and Communications officer Warrant Officer Jacques Mostert had the children very inquisitive, when they arrived on site with a police vehicle, as they wanted to know what the police were doing there.
They were very happy to find out that it was actually a friendly visit and they were in fact the ones being visited. With everyone assembled WO Mostert gave a safety awareness talk on child safety and each child was given a pamphlet containing the information that was relayed to them.

When the safety talk was completed the children requested to have a look at the patrol vehicle, especially at the back, with the next request being to try it out themselves. The officers were only too happy to oblige, and most of the children were given the opportunity to sit in the back.

The officers disembarked with a promise to visit the children again and left behind lots of new friends.
