Public Awareness Projects
Raising public awareness regarding crime prevention and safety through specific planned events, poster campaigns, websites, documentaries, newspaper articles, in schools and workplaces through providing information, explaining issues and disseminating knowledge to people so that they can make informed decisions. First, there is general public awareness, which involves widespread understanding and acknowledgement of the issues on a societal level – such as Gender Based Violence (GBV), Victimisation; Domestic Violence; Gangsterism; etc. Second, there is self-awareness, which occurs when individuals understand how the concept of safe places, crime and crime prevention affects them personally.
