It’s everyone’s responsibility to report crime to Police, says Mereseini Vuniwaqa.

The Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources made the comment while opening the Duavata Crime Prevention Carnival last Saturday night at Subrail Park in Labasa.

She was accompanied by the Commissioner Northern Jovesa Vocea, divisional Police commander northern SSP Shiri Bhawan Singh and carnival chairman Satish Kumar.

“I am delighted with the aim of carnival which is to fight against crime for everyone’s safety in the Northern Division,” Mrs Vuniwaqa said.

“Reporting crime to Police is everyone’s responsibility for everyone’s safety.”

Mrs Vuniwaqa commended the carnival committee for the projects it had completed after the fifth year of the carnival.

“The carnival projects have been witnessed in the North; from Bus shelters to a Police vehicle for Wainikoro Community Police Post to help the fight against crime.”

Mrs Vuniwaqa also shared on the increased budget allocation for Police of $131.7million which means special constables would now receive a 20 per cent pay rise.

Meanwhile, there are 23 contestants for the carnival with six princesses, four teens, five kings and eight queen contestants.

The carnival queen and king will be crowned on Saturday night.
