Big events like Deans final, Vodafone Hibiscus and church gatherings to take place.

The Fiji Police Force is anticipating an increase in the number of people moving in and out of the capital, Suva, for the next two weeks.

With all the movement, the activities and the hype they wish to remind the citizens of Suva and visitors into the capital to prioritise the safety of their families at all times.

At least 60 districts from around the country are part of the Rewa Galaxy Kaji Rugby and netball competition in Suva. By the end of the week secondary school students will come into Suva for the Deans rugby finals.

“This is another big event because it will include students, teachers, parents, old scholars of participating schools and of course rugby fans which is why we are seeking your assistance in making sure that we have a crime free weekend and more importantly that our children are not victims of crime,” Police chief operations officer, ACP Tito Elo said in a statement.

“To all parents and teachers be reminded the safety of our children is in your hands.”

He said: “The Vodafone Hibiscus Festival also starts this Saturday and with the change in the venue, this will affect travelling schedules and this must be planned well particularly where our children are involved. Any decision made must always have the best interest of the child.”

Various church conferences will also begin next week.

“Again for those planning on visiting Suva, your safety and security begins with you. Do not leave children unattended where your group is billeted,” ACP Elo said.

“Negligence is an offence and children will always be children and it is the duty of parents and guardians to eliminate all opportunities of a crime being committed.

“Remember one of our family members could be an offender or victim to a crime, make it your business to put your family first.”
