26 Vie For North Carnival

Twenty-six contestants are undergoing training in preparation for the Crime Prevention Carnival in Labasa next month.

Contestants’ trainer Josaia Loloma said a lot of interest had been shown in the lead up to the event.

“Most of the contestants have been showing up for the training before the big day,” Mr Loloma said.

He said the Queen contestants would represent different police stations and their districts in the North.

The contestants will speak on various issues ranging from drugs, cyber bullying, child abuse, truancy and other criminal activities.

The carnival will consist of six King contestants, eight Queen contestants, five Princess contestants, four Teen contestants and three Turaga contestants.

The chairman of the Northern Division Duavata Crime Prevention Carnival, Satish Kumar said the carnival was among the annual highlights in the North.

“In line with the Duavata Community Policing initiative, carnival contestants will represent various sectors of policing within the Northern Division,” Mr Kumar said.

He said the carnival was a forum where members of the community and the Fiji Police Force could build a partnership in order to achieve the common goal of a crime-free society.

The week-long carnival will be from June 20 – 27.
