Volunteers helping victims of crime
The Mossel Bay Community Policing Forum, together with the Mossel Bay Police Station and the community, are working hard to make the residents of Mossel Bay feel safe and protected.
One of the projects under way in the greater Mossel Bay area, is the VictimFriendly Volunteer Programme. This involves members of the community undergoing training in order to assist victims of crime.
The volunteers then make themselves available to assist victims of crime and trauma, until professional services are available to take over.
The Department of Community Safety recently sponsored reflective jackets for the Community Policing Forum.
Mossel Bay Tourism further assisted the team by sponsoring jackets for volunteers not living within the Mossel Bay Police Station jurisdiction. Everyone in the community of Mossel Bay is encouraged to get involved and can contact the Mossel Bay Police Station for more information at 044 606 2805.
Here are the volunteers with their new reflective jackets.
