I need more info about this medal.

It's a South African medal (City of Cape Town) 'Law Enforcement Civic Amenities' .

Is this a police medal or something else ?

Which city department issued this medal ?

I don't know for certain, but I would imagine that this medal was awarded to the "beach constables" who used to enforce the city regulations on the beaches, and that it was probably a long service medal.  The city fire brigade and traffic police also have/had long service medals.
