The Fiji Police Force is pleading with the public to come forward with information to curb the increasing cases of prevalent offences taking place in communities.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho made this comment following the release of the Fiji Police Crime Statistics Report 2015.

The report highlighted an increase in cases of rape and attempted rape, assault causing actual bodily harm, aggravated robbery, burglary, theft, damaging property and drugs offences last year compared to 2014.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said the police had been working hard to address these issues. One way in which they were working to address these issues is through the Duavata model.

“We are pleading with the community to report these things to us,” the Brigadier-General Qiliho said.

“We are trying to gain their confidence that they report to us so that we can act accordingly.

“Without the assistance from the community we won’t be able to do much.

“That’s why we are releasing these statistics so that the public is aware and we awake to this and someone is caught.”

The average increase in the prevalent crimes is 25 per cent with cases of theft topping the increase at 48 percent.
