Car guards now registered

Registered car guards in Walvis Bay received their municipal reflector jackets and ID cards on Thursday afternoon. These guards can now be identified from unregistered car guards.

A number of car guards gathered at the Walvis Bay Fire Brigade to meet with Nampol and traffic officials to receive their jackets and ID cards. “They now wear recognisable gear”, said traffic chief Eben Platt. Adding registered car guards now have zones in which they work.
Platt also made use of the opportunity on Thursday to address guards on the recent crime trends associated with unregistered or fake car guards. They used the disguise as car guard for opportunities to steal.
Platt urged registered car guards to pay attention and to “be the eyes and ears on the ground”.
As an encouragement, business owners and individuals pledged to reward these guards for work well done. An individual has announced that he will fund a monthly prize money to the best car guard. He plans a social media voting system.
