Community policing will only be effective when you take ownership of your neighbourhood, says Fiji Police Force Director of Operations Senior Superintendent Maritino Qiolevu.

SSP Qiolevu made the statement yesterday while launching the Port Mua-i-Walu Crime Free Business Neighbourhood Watch Board.

SSP Qiolevu said crime prevention was everyone’s business as he acknowledged the foresight of the Mua-i-Walu community and stakeholders in taking the first step towards keeping Walu Bay crime free.

He said the launch was a timely one as we approach the festive season.

He said the new partnership would send a strong message that crime was not welcomed at Port Mua-i-Walu and out at sea.

He also pleaded with members of the Mua-i-Walu community and Walu Bay to support the business neighbourhood watch initiative to ensure criminal presence was rooted out.

The launch was attended by members of the public, the Fiji Police Force, Maritime and Safety Authority of Fiji, Fiji Ports Authority and the shipping community.
