THE usually quiet suburb of Lorraine was abuzz on Friday when a group of members from the Lorraine Neighbourhood Watch, Walmer SAPS, Nelson Mandela Bay Metro Police and Animal Control took to the streets of Lorraine to illustrate that they are taking control of the area.

The operation, which was initiated by Ward 8 Councillor Gustav Rautenbach, saw this group of 30 individuals walking the streets of Lorraine, with focus on overgrown areas and the informal settlement near Lorraine.

Rautenbach said that the operation was a visibility exercise and to sweep the areas for possible criminal activities.

“We walked several streets and also visited the informal settlement where we very well received by the residents.

“The residents also requested that we pay more frequent visits to the area, and we are pleased with the positive feedback,” said Rautenbach.

“I would like to thank all the role players from the different departments who came out and made this operation a success.”

The next operation will take place soon in the Brymore, BenKamma and Beverley Grove area in co-operation with the Kabega Park SAPS.
