The Duavata North Crime Prevention Carnival kicked off with a march through the town of Labasa on Saturday sup­ported by a crowd of about 300 peo­ple and ended at the Damodar City complex site.

The contestants marched to the grounds with Bula wear to welcome the week long carnival in Labasa.

The six queens, five kings, five teenage queens with five princess­es competing for their respective ti­tles will be advocating on crimes of grave concern in the communities in the North including child abuse and violence against women.

Divisional Police Commander Northern Senior Superintendent Verani Nakauyaca was very enthu­siastic about the theme of the pag­eant.

“I support this carnival whole­heartedly as it supports the police drive to decrease the number of crimes in the North,” SSP Nakauy­aca said.

He said the people of the North should enjoy the week long carni­val.

“With the theme ‘Crime preven­tion is for everyone’s safety’ it is the North’s priority,” he said.

He said the festivities would be a safe week for Labasa Town with the closing at the crowning of the re­spective titles to be announced next Saturday.
