Maitland CID going beyond the call of duty


Over the past six weeks, Maitland CID has gone beyond the call of duty in various ways. Here’s a little round-up of recent happenings:

Escorting school children across the street

Large workload for MAITCID 

Minor repairs and, at times the replacement of for example road signs, are an ongoing concern in Maitland.

Manning of Commuter Points 

The public safety officers have regular commuter points which they man early mornings and late afternoons to create a safer environment for commuters during peak times.

Team also tackles graffiti removal 

Walls of businesses in Maitland are sometimes defaced by graffiti. This has to be removed by the cleaning team.

Maitland Park entrances are habitually tagged with graffiti that also requires removal. The team make sure that they do a neat and thorough job.
