Police are beefing up security measures in the four divisions through increased patrolling and monitoring due to the current weather situation.

Members of the public are advised to take precautionary measures in expectation of strong winds and heavy downpour.

Chief operations officer ACP Maretino Qiolevu said that the force was advising the public that its personnel were on standby to help in evacuations and rescue missions.

He added officers had been instructed to maintain presence at various locations and provide assistance that was needed.

ACP Qiolevu also advised parents and guardians to keep a close watch on their children and if they were found playing in flooded rivers, streams and crossings, parents and guardians would be questioned.

It was noticed in the past that people kept ignoring advisories and warnings, however, ACP Qiolevu reiterated that those found to be at fault could be charged with disobedience of lawful order under the Crimes Act. He is also advising those affected by the heavy downpour to move to higher ground or to evacuation centers.

Members of the public are urged to remain alert and vigilant and take advisories from relevant authorities seriously.
