Police Step Up Operation As Festive Season Draws Near

The anticipated movement of people around the four Policing divisions has respective heads putting in place proactive strategies to counter possible criminal activities.

As we draw closer to the festive season and the end of another school year, the Western Division will be putting in place measures to ensure the festive season is enjoyed by all without major incidents.

Western Deputy Divisional Police Commander (D/DPC/W) Superintendent of Police (SP) Abdul Khan says all necessary measures are being adopted.

“Our operations are aligned to the national strategies and as the festive season is usually a time for merry making and enjoyment, at times things tend to get way out of hand where people are caught on the wrong side of the law”.

He adds this is also a time where criminal elements take advantage of such situations.

“Members of the public can also expect more Police presence on our road and also expect roadblocks from time to time. This is not only to police traffic related offences such as illegal operations and drunk driving but to allow our teams to keep tabs on activities in our division”, said SP Khan.

“Officers deployed will not only be there to provide safety and security but they will also be out there to create safety awareness on a number of issues”.

Throughout the coming days and weeks officers in the Western Division will be visiting homes, schools, communities and villages to form new relationships between members of the public and the Police.

In dealing with recent cases of aggravated robberies, SP Khan has assured that the dedicated teams tasked with the investigations are zeroing in on those responsible for the cowardly attacks.

At the same time the Fiji Police Force continues to seek everyone’s support this festive season to keep criminal elements at bay.

By working together we can show that we have more eyes and ears on the ground and by sharing information through the anonymous Crime Stoppers line on 919 or by sending a message on the Crime Stoppers Facebook page we will be able to arrest those involved in such criminal activities.
