Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports Iliesa Delana last Saturday launched Valelevu in Nasinu as a Neighbourhood Watch Zone

“Let’s work together in reducing crime; let’s unite in reporting crime; let’s create a safer community for us all Fijians; let’s build a better and safer Fiji,” Mr Delana said.

He said youths were blessed with the gifts of energy and creativity.

“We should provide a platform that will help youths appreciate these gifts and maximise their potentials,” he said.

“If we realise that our youths are secure at their home fronts, schools, churches, – we will solve our crime problems,” Mr Delana said.

“We will reduce our prisons and use resources spent on curbing crimes and maintaining prisons in other development,” he said.

He said we must ensure we directed our children and youths on the right path for they are our future.

“If we forget them today then we should expect a bleak future filled with chaos and crime. I plead that we direct our resources towards awareness and preventing crime as equally important to solving crime.

Meanwhile, the El-Mos Youth Club president Tevita Bogiva said: “We have established Valelevu as Neighbourhood Watch Zone where our youths will help look after crime in our area.”

“To help the youths get jobs they have attended the training given by the Ministry of Youth and Sports,” he said.
