The Botswana Police Service (BPS) has this week Tuesday finally managed to launch the ‘Child Friendly Policing Standard Operating Procedures after spending most of the past two years working on reviewing and evaluating the procedures.

The procedures target mostly the reception, interviewing and referral of cases involving children. Goitseone Ngono, who is the director, Gender and Child Protection, took the people through the whole process that led to the setting up the procedures.

“To come with these procedures, we worked with the Ministry of Education and Skills Development (MESD), the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), the Ministry of Health (MOH) as well as civil societies including Childline Botswana,” Ngono said.
