CT authorities to beef up security at tourist hubs

The city of cape town authorities is working closely with police and municipal law enforcement agencies to ensure safety at tourist hotspots during the festive season. In the past the authorities have noted an increase in attacks on tourists and locals during the holiday period ,particularly in the Table mountain national park.

James Vos, City assets and facilities Mayco member stated that ,it is hard to promote Cape town as a  travel destination of choice without  ensuring visitors’ safety, hence the move by authorities to put safety of tourists on top of the cities’ priority list.

“We’ll also work closely with other agencies and private security industry. We also have television installations in the city. Another exciting initiative is the safety ambassadors which we are deploying throughout certain parts of the city.” said James Vos
