The Crime Stoppers Unit of the Fiji Police Force will reward members of the public who provide them with information that could lead to an arrest.

This was confirmed following an arrest on Tuesday, when a suspect on the Crimes Stoppers’ Wanted List was apprehended by the help of the Nanuku community.

A Nanuku woman, who wished to remain anonymous, had seen the suspect on the Crime Stoppers Wanted List in the Fiji Sun after establishing contact with him through social media.

Crime Stoppers Unit Media officer Avinesh Kisnu said after the successful arrest, recommendation for the award would be taken up during their National Crime Stoppers board meeting.

Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said the issue of the reward was the prerogative of the Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho.

Mr Kisnu said the reward would be in the form of cash and the amount for the person with the information would be determined during the meeting next month.

He said the partnership between the Fiji Sun and the Crime Stoppers was very positive in the successful arrests made this year.

“People are able to identify criminals that are roaming their communities with the help of the wanted list published in the Fiji Sun.”

Mr Kisnu said taxi and buses drivers were taking advantage of the initiative by carrying the wanted list in their vehicles for identification purposes.

He said the suspect that was arrested in Nanuku settlement on Tuesday had multiple alias identities as featured in last Wednesday’s Wanted List. Fiji Sun publishes the Crime Stoppers Wanted List every Wednesday free of charge to raise awareness.
