VICTORIA FALLS TOURISM POLICE - December 2011
We would firstly like to welcome you all to the first edition of the 2011 Victoria Falls Tourist Police newsletter.
In this and future newsletters we will be including current news and updates as well as up-coming events and special occasions to look out for. We trust that you have had a good year to date and appreciate all the support you’ve given to The Tourism Police. We are celebrating 7 years in operation and we started 2011 with a revived committee setting new and changeling objections.
Mission statement for the Tourism Police;
To ensure that Victoria Falls remains a safe and friendly environment for all.
Remember that they are there to look after you, guide and assist you. The unit continues to operate seven days a week and you will see them in their smart uniforms with yellow reflective bibs in all the main tourist areas of the town.
As we are all well aware that security is a highly important consideration, by travelers when choosing their idyllic getaway and so, with an increase in occupancies and travelers that we have all noticed through late 2010 and 2011, this in return has also increased the amount of vendors and thefts in the town. Zimbabwe Republic Police in conjunction with the local business stakeholders has continued to keep the operation alive, and with thanks to all stakeholders we are pleased to continue to make Victoria Falls a safe destination.
Understanding at times that the police are swamped with many vendors and due to an increase of tourists around the town; we do our upmost best to maintain the awareness of offices and any concerns are brought to the committees attention immediately.
To date we had over 500 arrests from illegal vendors and with the peak season upon us we will be out in force to continue achieving these positive results.
With the increase in operating costs that we all are familiar with, your support is absolutely imperative to continue and keep the operation alive. We therefore thank you once again for you continued support and look forward to a strong working relationship moving forward into the new year.
Here wishing you all the success for 2012 and a safe and cheerful festive season.
Please free to send us you suggestions or any feedback to help ensure we facilitate and meet your expectations.
The Tourism Police Committee
