Vice Squad issue fines, profile new prostitutes over the long weekend

The City of Cape Town's Vice Squad issued more than 30 fines amounting to R25100 in various operations held across the city this long weekend. These operations formed part of the unit's ongoing attempt to remove prostitutes from the city's streets and to assist them in returning to normal lives.


The main focus areas this weekend, on Sunday 20 March and Monday 21 March, were Milnerton, Bellville, Goodwood, Lansdowne, Wynberg and Claremont.

During these operations members of the unit issued 34 fines, which included, amongst others:
  • 12 fines for first offenders
  • 7 fines for second offenders
  • 3 fines for third offenders
  • Profiling of two new prostitutes
The highest number of contraventions were recorded in the Milnerton area. The Lansdowne area, around Wetton Road, was also a major focus point this weekend. The Vice Squad found that the majority of sex workers who conduct their activities in that area reside in Hanover Park and are aged between 20 and 39 years old.

The Vice Squad is often supported by various non-governmental agencies who assist with rehabilitation by re-uniting former prostitutes with their families and assisting them in finding legal employment.

Tip-offs are always appreciated and the Vice Squad would like to appeal to members of the public to report possible prostitution or brothel activity in their area to the 24-hour Control Room on 021 596 1999, or during office hours on 021 918 7410.
