GEORGE NEWS - Law enforcement at Victoria Bay has improved since the beginning of December when Marelize Claassen, though appointed to manage the Victoria Bay caravan park from the Victoria Bay office, pitched in to monitor the CCTV surveillance system as well.
 

The young woman with the can-do approach was on duty the entire month, and after hours the cameras were monitored at the disaster management control room at Eden district municipality. Claassen said things went extremely well and not one serious incident was reported in December.
 
"I received good cooperation from law enforcement officials and all role players at the bay." She added that a contract is expected to be awarded for an upgrade in Eden's CCTV camera surveillance system.
 
Though a strict policy pertaining to areas of responsibility is maintained by Eden and George municipalities, they found a way to work together and a ban on alcohol as well as anti-social behaviour was strictly maintained.

Die status quo van die Stilbaai veldbrand bly dieselfde as vanoggend. Geen verdere strukture is beskadig nie en bly watervoorraad konstant. Vroeg middag het 3 vure opgestaan by Blombos aan die Oostekant van die vuur maar is dit onder beheer. Brandbestryders moet nou net deurdruk om te verseker dat die vure nie opvlam nie. Lugbystand bly konstant om die vuur se rug te breek.
