Cops, community promise to 'drive out violence' with convoy

A host of emergency service personnel and community members took to Campbelltown's streets, shops and community centres today to share one message: we will not accept violence.

The Driving Out Violence convoy saw police, firefighters, service providers spread the anti-violence message throughout the area.

They made stops at Glenquarie Town Centre, Minto Marketplace, Eagle Vale Marketplace, Campbelltown Stadium, AB Central, Macarthur Square and Koshigaya Park.

Campbelltown Police Area Command crime prevention and community safety office David Blom told the Advertiser before the event that the convoy was all about 'taking a stand'.

"In most cases of violence we encounter, men are the perpetrators, whether it's violence between men or men and women," Senior Constable Blom said.

"So this convoy is about men coming together, taking a stand and saying we won't accept violence in Campbelltown or anywhere."
