THE Northern Crime Prevention carnival contestants were yesterday urged to play an active role in increasing awareness on crime.
Deputy divisional police commander northern Senior Superintendant of Police Fulori Rainibogi said crime prevention was not a new concept in the country because it was everyone’s responsibility to curb criminal activities.
“Your participation at the upcoming carnival will give you an opportunity to increase awareness on crime prevention,” SSP Rainibogi told the contestants at a morning tea gathering yesterday.
“It’s not only about helping the police but also creating a safer and secured economy where people can live freely with no fear.
“Success comes with hard work and perseverance and in order for us to build a better nation, we all have to work together to create a safer neighbourhood,” she said.
SSP Rainibogi also thanked the family members of the contestants and the carnival committee for their joint efforts in the bid to help police with their work.
“This is indeed a worthy cause and I hope that people will understand what crime means and refrain from indulging in such illegal acts,” she said.
The eight contestants said they were prepared to help police awareness on crime prevention. The carnival starts next Thursday.
