Increase in foot patrols and the number of Police vehicles are contributing factors: ACP Tudravu

 

The Fiji Police Force have made enormous improvements in this year’s Christmas Eve operations around the country compared to last year.

Police chief operations officer Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Rusiate Tudravu said the increase in the number of officers on the streets this year and the increase in the number of Police vehicles were two major contributing factors that led to this change.

“”Before there used to be brawls on the streets after people returned from nightclubs but now they are just enjoying themselves and going back home,” ACP Tudravu said.

“This year there’s a change because of the real boost in Police mobility. Police officers could also be seen on the ground and we are mobilising ourselves,” he said.

More than 100 police officers were deployed for operation within the central business district in Suva alone.

“The senior officers are also out. Almost everyone in the force apart from those that are not available or are on leave; most of us are out on coverage from all the other divisions.”

ACP Tudravu confirmed overall there were no arrests made during their Christmas Eve operations which showed the high visibility of Police officers on the streets was working. Edited by Manasa Kalouniviti
