The city has announced its masterplan for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.
This plan will see an improvement and facelift in safety and security, throughout the city.
Cllr JP Smith, Mayoral Committee Member for Safety & Security, says they want to “ensure that visitors to the city, both local and foreign, are left with pleasant memories of their visit and no incidents”.
“We’ve put in place security plans that will make the areas involved in 2010 (fan parks and the fan mile) safe and secure.
“ To do that we’ve had to roll out extra resources, which include extra traffic cops, extra law enforcement members, metro police members and also vehicles and equipment for all of them,” said Councillor Smith.
Additional CCTV cameras will also be installed. Councillor Smith added that mobile incident management and disaster risk management has also been beefed up.
