The Nadi businessman, Mouzeem Safeel Mohammed doesn’t only focus on combating crimes in his community but also contribute to members welfare.

Mr Mohammed, 35, has been recently elected president of the Nawai Police Post Crime Prevention Committee (CPC), which serves the two districts of Nadroga Navosa Province.

The district of Wai includes the villages and settlements of Bavo, Kubuna, Tao and Nakorokula.

The district of Raviravi includes the villages of Momi, Yako, Nabila and Nakorokula.

On Monday, the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday holiday, he organised distribution of food packs from the Fiji Muslim Sports Association to the needy families in areas which he serves.

Two months after being elected as CPC leader in his community, he has won the support of the village heads and the Vanua of Nawai.

The father of three children said the motivation of engaging with the community and Fiji Police Force was also looking into the welfare of people.

“Crime may be committed through the lack they were faced with in their homes. The CPC’s community leaders were able to identify families who were really in need of food,” he said.

“So being in this leadership position I also focus on the welfare of the people. It was not only that I am engaging with the village heads in supporting whatever initiative they have that build up their communities.”

Meanwhile, Nadi Police Station cluster chief, Sergeant Penijamini Vukivou, said through Mohammed’s leadership, 21 CPCs were revived in Nawai.

“It was the first in Nadi for a president of CPC to be actively engaged and get full support from the vanua and the communities. “

Divisional manager for community policing, west, Superintendent of Police (SP) Lepani Liga, said having an active president like Mr Mohammed would really help combat crime.
