The City of Cape Town says since the beginning of the festive season, the Metro Police have been out in force on all the main beaches and according to reports this has helped bring down the number of incidents.
Metro Police spokesperson Nowellen Petersen says it is encouraging to see that there has been a marked improvement in the behaviour of beach-goers and this has made the police’s task much easier.
However, Petersen says the amount of children who go missing is a major cause for concern. Petersen says that parents should keep a look out for their children at all times.
