I think we should all be saying thank you for your service to our police. They really do have a bad rep with the public and you know the adage, be the change you want to see in the world, let’s do that. One small step at a time” – Glynis Brits

Wow this has made my womens day! this is so nice to see comments like this and not backlahsing them. Lets show our gratitude to them also and work hand in hand! Well done SAPS!” – Carol Ehlers 

The Douglasdale SAPS were not the only ones handing out gifts to the women of Johannesburg. In town, women were given a safety pamphlet and a safety whistle.

With all the marches taking place for women’s rights and fighting against Gender-based violence, it is nice to see that the cops got involved.
