The upcoming summer season sees many visitors and tourists flocking to Port Elizabeth to enjoy our warm weather, friendly residents and stunning beaches.
Each season a tourism safety hot spot project is put in place as a joint effort between Nelson MAndela Bay Tourism (NMBT), the Humewood South African Police Services (SAPS) , the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Safety and Security Directorate, the beach office, the Traffic Department, Disaster Management, the Fire and Environmental Services.
The Golden Mile area from King’s Beach to the Beacon in Summerstrand is a favoured hot spot that forms the focal point of the project which started on Friday 16 November. The modus operandi is to provide visible policing through an additional poilice presence with members on foot, mounted, on Segway’s and with regular patrols. Supporting the additional police will be 40 Safety and Security officers who will concentrate on municipal bye law enforcement.
A zero tolerance towards liquor consumption will be applied throughout the festive season. Anyone caught in a roadblock with large amounts of liquor will be requested to leave their vehicle behind and to walk to the beach. Anyone refusing to do so and wanting to procedd with their vehicle will have to volunteer to destroy their alcohol suplies themselves.
