Overstrand Law Enforcement and Task Team recently conducted various operations in and around the Overstrand to clear away bedding and other possessions belonging to homeless people from parks, cliffs along the coastline and in the mountain.
They also remove homeless people almost on a daily basis from parks, but the homeless people sleeping in parks or on streets find their way back to the same areas as they do not have anywhere to go.
Law Enforcement officers also patrol the cliff paths on regular intervals to maintain visibility.
Assistant chief: law enforcement and task team, Johan du Toit, advised residents to report vagrants sleeping in open areas on 028 313 8980.
Alternatively phone Overstrand’s control room on 028 313 8000/8111.
