CT beefs up security, warns holidaymakers to party safe
The Central City Improvement District has contracted additional safety and law enforcement officers to patrol the streets in the CBD, especially at night.
CAPE TOWN - There is more law enforcement on the street this festive season in Cape Town in a bid to keep up with the influx of holidaymakers.
The Central City Improvement District (CCID) has contracted additional safety and law enforcement officers to patrol the streets in the CBD, especially at night.
Some of the main areas where the officers will be out and about are the "party streets" like Long, Harrington and Bree streets.
The CCID's Moeneeb Hendricks has cautioned revellers to be responsible when partying.
“Don’t accept open drinks or leave your drinks unattended from anybody. Even if from the barman, make sure he pours the drinks in front of you. Stay on the beach and park with your crew. Sometimes when we meet somebody for the first time and we leave our group to go with this person.”
Just last week a 36-year old woman was reported as missing by her family after she failed to arrive at her parents’ house in Greyton. She was eventually found by someone on Friday wandering the streets of Cape Town - she'd had her drink spiked the night before.
