Police Aiming For Incident-Free Match At Churchill Park, Lautoka

Traffic operations, snap checks and breathalyser checks will be conducted as we head into the big weekend of the Drua v Chiefs game in Lautoka this tomorrow.

Chief Operations Officer, Assistant Commissioner of Police Abdul Khan said the snap and breathalyser checks was intended to ensure that the weekend was accident free.

“The intent is to ensure an incident free match not only for the match day proper, but leading up to and after as we anticipate increased movement of people heading into the weekend,” he said.

“Traffic Operations will be beefed up and anticipate snap checks and breathalyser checks to be conducted.

“Apart from the special operations during the week in the build up to the match in the Western Division, we anticipate opportunists will try to take advantage of the movement of people and commit crimes. This has been factored into our operational posture,” ACP Khan said.

He said the Police needed everyone to co-operate with them in adhering to the advisories.

“We also need people to intervene in situations that could pose a safety threat to innocent parties particularly where alcohol is involved and that is anticipated,” ACP Khan said.

“We are calling for community support and for any issues please do not hesitate to call your respective Command Centres for assistance.”
