Volunteers mobilized to keep order in scenic spots

Songjiang launched a volunteer program last week to help maintain order at tourist attractions and prevent unlawful activities. Visitors may have their misdemeanors recorded in the public credit information system, officials said.

Volunteers are working in scenic spots in the district to promote civilized manners, hand out Songjiang maps and pamphlets, and offer other services to visitors. People can register for volunteer jobs online and receive some training before they go to work.

Local tourism authorities have found problems in scenic areas and hope the volunteers can help improve the environment of tourist spots and attract more visitors.
