Students at a Crime Stoppers  event in Bua province, Vanua Levu, have been reminded that doing the right thing will not always win them friends.

The comment was made by Deputy Divisional Police Commander Northern Assistant Superintendent of Police Peni Moi, while launching the Crime Stoppers Scholastic Programme at Bua Central College on Thursday.

“The new partnership signifies your commitment to doing the right thing and saying no to criminal activities or wrongdoings happening not only within your school boundary, but in any part of your life,” SSP Moi said.

“Doing the right thing doesn’t always win you friends. We are here to mark this auspicious occasion as Bua Central College becomes another of Fiji Police’s close allies in our fight against crime.”

He said he came across such incidents and it saddened him to see young people getting caught up in such situations.

“And I can immediately see in their eyes the regret they have,” SSP Moi said.

“While my heart aches for the fact that they are caught in this situation, it is inevitable that if you choose to live a life of crime you will have to face the consequences according to the law.

“As long as I am the head of operations I never want to come across a case involving a student of Bua Central College.”

Six schools in the North signed up for the programme and four more schools will launch it in the North next week.
