NEARLY half the schools in Alicante Province will welcome police talks against gender violence.
The Government is launching a campaign to fight gender violence throughout the Valencia Region with the intention of Guardia Civil and National Police officers offering educational talks to students about this scourge in society.
It is an issue that has seen a worrying rise in cases in youngsters with double the number reported in those aged 18 and under, from 65 cases last year to 118 cases recorded so far this year in the Region.

The talks will not only include gender violence but also on the proper use of social networks, mobile and internet which, according to the authorities, this is the main concern of parents and the educational community.
Schools can request the delivery of these workshops through the Regional Government and they can also be extended to parents associations, NGOs and victim associations so that they too can be part of the initiative.
