‘To all parents and teachers be reminded the safety of our children is in your hands’

The Fiji Police Force is anticipating an increase in the number of people moving in and out of the capital over the next two weeks.

With all the movement and activities, we would like to remind the citizens of Suva and visitors into the capital to prioritise the safety of your family at all times.

We will be having some important events starting at the weekend and the Fiji Police Force is already in operation readiness.

The schools will be battling in the finals of the Deans Trophy Competition at the ANZ Stadium where Southern Division Operations will be on high alert.

We request students, who will be carrying their school’s flag not to fly the flag outside the bus windows.

The traffic officers will be monitoring the situation, do not involve yourself in such actions.

Police is seeking assistance from parents, teachers, students and  old scholars of participating schools and of course rugby fans to make sure  we have a crime free weekend.

But, more importantly that our children are not victims of crime.

“To all parents and teachers be reminded the safety of our children is in your hands,” Police chief operations officer ACP Maretinio Qiolevu said.

“The Fiji Police Force is also prepared for operations to provide security at the 2018 Vodafone Hibiscus Festival at the Valelevu Ground starting last night.

“With the change in the venue, this will affect traveling schedules and this must be planned well, particularly where our children are involved.

“Any decision made must always have the best interest of the child.”

To conclude the Methodist Church Conference will also begin this weekend and again for those planning on visiting Suva, your safety and security begins with you.

“Do not leave children unattended where your group is billeted,” ACP Qiolevu said.

“The term-two school holidays break begins this weekend, so please look after your children at all times.

“Negligence is an offence and children will always be children and it is the duty of parents and guardians to eliminate all opportunities of a crime being committed. “Remember one of our family members could be an offender or victim to a crime, make it your business to put your family first.”
