Police is increasing their patrols in the city at night to control the numbers of drunkards during the Easter holidays.

Police spokesperson Inspector Josaia Weicavu said: “We are experiencing a lot of drunkards in towns and cities these days and we are expecting the same this Easter weekend.

“We have increased our manpower to patrol the city in the night.

“This includes our Criminal Investigation Department officers and Traffic Department officers, Highway Patrol officers to look after drunk and reckless drivers.”

Inspector Weicavu said those who would be patronizing the night clubs were advised to enjoy the night peacefully and go back home.

“Avoid unnecessary quarrels and the use of abusive language to others as this can trigger unnecessary fighting that can cause injuries,” Inspector Weicavu said.

“Those who misbehave will be taken to task.”

Inspector Weicavu said drivers to be vigilant when driving at night and be careful of drunkards staggering their way home or looking for transport.

“Let’s look after each other and champion the meaning of Easter of “love” this long weekend please,” he said.

Inspector Weicavu said they had not arrested any drunkards so far and they were ensuring that these drunkards who visit night clubs go back to their homes safely.
