Crime Rates Drop After First Week: Tudravu

Crime rates have dropped in the first week of the festive season,says Fiji Police Force chief of operations, Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu.

He said the force recorded a decrease in serious offences compared to their first week of operation last year.

“We can say that we have a 46 per cent decrease this year compared to our first week of operation last year,” ACP Tudravu said.

“The only concern we have now is speeding on our roads. Since our operation started we have been recording an average of 30 bookings per day for speeding.”

He said the western and southern divisions were also their areas of focus while situations in the eastern and northern divisions were steady.

“In the West there have been cases of theft of motor vehicles in the Nadi area but all have been found again.

“There were also a few cases of people found in possession of drugs but overall the crime rates have reduced.”

ACP Tudravu advised all stakeholders that the force placed a zero tolerance on drunk and driving especially during this festive season.

“Our zero tolerance on dangerous driving under the influence of liquor is still in place and whoever is caught drunk and driving during breathalyzer test will spend the night in the cell and appear in court the very next day.”

Meanwhile, ACP Tudravu also warned the puplic that four remand prisoners had escaped from the Nasinu courthouse and a cell block in Suva this week.
