Capetonians behaved well this festive season - CoCT

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith says Capetonians behaved well this festive season.

There were no major incidents compared to previous years, he says.

Smith says there were about 1700 safety officers who volunteered, making sure that everything runs smoothly especially around beaches.

There is no reward, no remuneration they just want to help...

The city has been disappointed in the past in terms of how people behaved over the festive season, say Smith.

The volunteers didn't have to deal with drunk people, bringing alcohol to the beaches, and lost children, according to Smith.

We felt that the public have heard the message and have made the connections themselves. They made an effort to make it easier for everyone.
