City Watch helping police fight crime in tough Morata

Main Stories

A TOTAL of 110 City Watch Inc volunteers are assisting police patrol parts of Morata in the National Capital District without uniforms and transport.
Police patrols are carried out every day to curb the drinking of alcohol on the road with drunks harassing the public and causing trouble.
City Watch works with NCD police and City Rangers to maintain cleanliness and law and order.
Chairman Alex Jafa said they were assisting police to maintain the peace during the festive period.
“Due to logistics, we have not reached Morata 2 and 3, and parts of Morata 1,” he said.
“We kindly request any businesshouse and individual to sponsor us with uniforms and other logistics.”
Jafa said they needed at least two vehicles to patrol the streets and uniforms.
Morata, once notorious for criminal activities, has been slowly changing. Jafa said they had engaged 90 men and 20 women to patrol Morata.
Operation started last week and will continue into next month.
City Watch also carries out street cleaning programmes every Wednesday.
Jafa said members had been using their bare hands to clean the streets without proper materials like gloves, bags, rakes, knives and tools.
