SOUTHERN African Regional Police Chiefs Cooperation Organisation (SARPCCO) women officers are, from today, expected to meet people campaigning against gender-based violence and other crimes of passion, a senior cop has said.
Assistant Commissioner, Paul Nyathi, said the Zimbabwe Republic Police Women Network is set to join other regional women police officers in the campaign.
“There is an international operation under SARPCCO members starting tomorrow (today) to fight cases of gender-based violence and other crimes of passion,” said Ass Comm Nyathi.
“The Zimbabwe Republic Police is one of the members of SARPCCO and the police women network will join other regional members in the fight against crime.
“We are appealing to members of the public to cooperate with the police women network in the fight against crimes of passion and gender-based violence cases.
“The nation has to work hand-in-glove with the police in fighting against social ills that affect vulnerable members of the society,” he said. He urged people to report cases to police rather than take the law into their own hands.
