Jo'burg police march against gender violence

Hundreds of police officers and public prosecutors started gathering at the Johannesburg Central police station on Wednesday to march in support of the “16 Days” campaign of no violence against women and children.

Dressed in police uniforms and carrying South African flags, they prepared to march to Beyers Naude Square, where a dedication in support of the campaign would be signed.

Present were National Prosecuting Authority staff, Community Policing Forum members and the Johannesburg Metro police.

They are to be led by a marching band and a contingent of Metro police officers.

Metro police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said roads closed during the march, expected to end around midday, included Market, Simmonds, Sauer and Commissioner.—Sapa
