Be vigilant and stay safe this summer

24 December 2017
Kouga Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen (second right) welcomes newly-appointed Jeffreys Bay Peace Officers. The officers are drawn from the Jeffreys Bay Community Police Forum, the Paradise Beach and Aston Bay Neighbourhood Watches. They were duly sworn in by the SAPS and appointed by the municipality as required by law. The volunteers have been trained by the municipality’s Safety and Security sections and will be assisting with law enforcement duties and crime prevention in the area. They will be identifiable with their lime green t-shirts which are marked with the words “Law Enforcement”.

Residents and holidaymakers are requested to be vigilant and to ensure their belongings are secure when going to bed at night, or even when going out in the evening.

A lot of the petty crime taking place is opportunistic and can be minimised if windows are secured and doors locked.

Kouga Municipality's Law Enforcement unit, assisted by the South Africa Police, are patrolling the J’Bay main beach area and holidaymakers are urged to rather walk in a group when walking from town towards Aston Bay as incidents have occurred on that section of beach.

Additional patrols are presently taking place in the area.
