Cape Town’s beaches and recreational hotspots are to be patrolled by “auxiliary” law enforcement officers.
The volunteer officers, who start work in the run-up to the peak holiday period between Christmas and New Year’s Day, will patrol the city's popular beach areas, focusing primarily on dealing with alcohol-related incidents.
After completing three months of part-time training, the volunteer officers will lead after-hours patrols with neighbourhood watch groups.
All officers must be over 21 and have no criminal record.
