On Friday, 12 June, close to a hundred proud SAPS FCS members received their certificates for training done by MAB. During the awards ceremony, Commissioner Petros, “joined” the MAB team, by calling himself a part of the MAB family. He also recognised the important work MAB is doing in assisting child abuse victims. During the last year MAB trained more than 100 police officers in the Western Cape. This training included Child Protection Protocols, various soft skills (like conflict management and client service) and mentorship courses. The group included a broad spectrum of the WC police force, from student constables to top WC SAPS management. The value of this training is estimated to be close to a million Rand. The officers will now be able to use these skills not only to investigate crimes, but also to mentor other officers and share valuable knowledge.
We would like to thank Sanlam and Santam for sponsoring the event and our main training sponsors for this training possible:
