Male police officers in Pretoria, South Africa, marched on October 14, seeking to mobilize “society to play an active role” in the fight against gender-based violence as part of the South African Police Service’s “men for change” campaign.

Police Minister Bheki Cele announced the deployment of more officers throughout weekends as part of the campaign, local media reported.

Officers were also expected to pledge to improve “service delivery” in the fight against crimes committed against women, children, and vulnerable groups. They also were expected to pledge “to teach those in our care the values of human dignity, equality and respect.”

South African officials said in a statement that “the awareness campaign led by the men in blue seeks to raise awareness on the scourge of violence with a view of mobilising society to play an active role in assisting the work of the Police in detecting, preventing and fighting Gender-Based Violence within communities.”

Officials said at least 1,500 officers would attend the march.
