Paradise Beach has enjoyed a crime free festive season despite a substantial increase in visiting holiday makers.
We had a record – breaking number of merry – makers celebrating new year’s at the Causeway.
An increase in recreational and social activities in the Eastern Cape were accompanied by a sharp increase in opportunistic criminal activity.
In stark contrast, Paradise Beach bucked this trend.
Not a single criminal incident has been reported in Paradise Beach this December.
This can largely attributed to close co-operation between all safety and security role – players:
- Traffic control
- Municipal law enforcement,
- Fire protection service
- and the local Neighbourhood Watch.
Specific crime prevention and response initiatives had been devised and were implemented.
