Al-Bouq said 126 people were apprehended for indulging in criminal activities,3,544 people for begging on the streets. There were 1,858 women among them, as well as 1,676 children, all of them foreigners. Urging citizens to report any violation or incident on the toll free numbers, Al-Bouq said: “We expect everybody to cooperate with us. They should refrain from giving money to beggars because many of them make begging their profession, and they turn more active during Ramadan,” he said. Ali Sadi, chief of Jeddah police, said the governorate works round the clock to fight crime... “No matter what kind of crime or violation, we appeal to the citizens to report such incidents and to refrain from giving money to people who don’t deserve it,” he said.
Khalid Al-Hamid, who works in a private company for Haj and Umrah services, said he feels upset at the sight of beggars on the streets, which has become very common in Jeddah.
“I know that this is a global problem and beggars can be found in any city. Unfortunately, we are seeing their numbers rise particularly with Ramadan fast approaching,” he said.
