Police officers at the Sabeto Police Station will now be better able to reach out to the villages within area operation for awareness programme.

This after Telecom Fiji yesterday provided a timely assistance of Information Technology equipment.

The station officer in charge, Inspector Mesake Varo said, this had been a request made to the Minister for Defence National Security, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola during his visit to the Station in October.

Inspector Varo said they were thankful to the Ratu Inoke for facilitating the request and Telecom Fiji for their help.

Along with the equipment was a projector which Inspector Vora said: “The projector that was given will assist in the community awareness programmes.

“We have seven villages in our operation area and in those villages through the use of those equipment we will be able to reveal to them the facts and figures and clips for them to be aware of the crimes or consequences of breaking the law,” he said.

Meanwhile the director for Defence National Security, (Ministry for Defence and National Security), Tiale Vuiyasawa, said another request made during Ratu Inoke’s visit, was to upgrade the road which led up to the Sabeto Police Station.

The road remains gravelled.

He added for this, the Assistant Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, Vijay Nath was at the Sabeto Police Station yesterday to meet with the Police Officers and also to inspect the road.

He is expected to make considerations in order to tar seal the road.

Mr Vuiyasawa also mentioned that the current ratio of Police to public was around one to 400.

Therefore he said they needed to be well equipped because they had been under resourced previously.
