CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police have been deployed to problem areas in Cape Town to interact with victims of violence and crime.

The South African Police Service (SAPS) is launching its 16 Days of Activism for no Violence Against Women and Children in Nyanga on Monday.

This year's theme of the campaign is safety starts first in the home.

Officials are walking door-to-door handing out pamphlets.

The 13th annual 16 Days of Activism for no Violence Against Women and Children kicked off with a number of projects across South Africa.

SAPS says officers will be working closely with victims during this time, empowering them to become survivors.

Officers also want to ensure that women and children in all communities know their rights.

President Jacob Zuma officially launched the 16 Days of Activism Campaign in Braamfontein in central Johannesburg.
