Mullsunders, reckless dog owners, cyclists in pedestrian zones: ten uniformed municipal employees will support the police in nurnberg in the fight against rowdy behavior in the future. As the city announced on friday, the initially seven colleagues of the new communal cleaning service are to keep an eye on irregularities.
In addition to the city center, they are also to control the grill zones seven days a week. The number of employees is to be increased to ten next year. From the beginning of december, their area of operation will initially include the old city ring road and will be expanded later on.

They are not to be confused with the 52 volunteer security guards who help the police, especially on weekends. They were allowed to determine the identity of someone who posed a danger, and they were allowed to hold them until the police arrived. They were also allowed to issue expulsions. They wear tactical jackets and a service ID card.
