“By attending this workshop the participants are now equipped with the right tool to assist them deal with any problem that might arise and assist their elders and leaders in looking after their community to ensure they are safe and live in a peaceful environment.”
“This is a very good training for our young people to prepare them with responsibilities and I want to encourage the participants to implement what they have learnt and work together with your Police to make your community a happier place to live in,” says Sgt Manegaua.
