Keep your child safe

Paarl social media users and South African media have warned citizens about child abduction in the past week.

Paarl police spokesperson Captain Louise du Plessis said the Winelands Cluster is aware of social media posts mentioning kidnappings and children’s safety in the area. “No incidents have been reported in the area,” she asserted.

She reminded residents of the valley that the law stipulates that children’s safety in schools is the responsibility of the school who must ensure that all safety and security measures are in place during school hours.

She emphasised, however, the safety of learners walking or commuting to school and back remains the sole responsibility of parents.

“Parents must ensure their children are escorted to school and if they walk that they do not walk alone, but remain in a group at all times,” she said.

Du Plessis said parents must teach children to never get into a stranger’s vehicle and not to accept a lift with someone they know without consulting a parent first. She also said children must know not to speak to strangers or attempt to assist an adult who requests assistance but rather to alert another adult immediately.
