THE cloudy weather around Lautoka on Monday did not dampen the spirits of organisers of the weeklong Divisional Crime Prevention Carnival at Churchill Park.
The festival that began last week has been targeting residents in the Western Division in its awareness.
Western Division community policing commander Faiaz Ali said despite the weather, people had been turning up at the police tents.
"The weather has not been favourable for us but we are still hopeful that people will turn up," Mr Ali said.
Apart from creating awareness on crime prevention and raising money for community policing in the west, he said more activities including sporting events had been organised during the carnival.
"We hope to hold three games of rugby union, rugby league and soccer on Friday," he said.
Mr Ali said money raised from the carnival would go towards funding the construction of a community post between the Rakiraki and Tavua stretch and mobile community posts.
He said money would also go towards purchasing of technical equipments for more than 20 community posts in the Western Division.
