POLICE in the north are increasing community awareness programs by conducting dialogue with communities in their respective areas of operations.

Deputy divisional police commander north Senior Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi confirmed officers have begun house-to-house visits and the profiling of communities.

"Taveuni Police Station has started their awareness programs through profiling farming settlements and businesshouses in an attempt to know their area of operation well," she said.

"Our officers on the island are conducting visitation and awareness programs to areas that have been marked as red zone areas or crime-prone zones in an attempt to neutralise them and the success of this initiative will depend on the reduction of crime reports from these areas.

"Together with the above activities, personnel are also taking the opportunity to finalise investigations into pending cases and the rounding up of suspects to complete court dockets," she said.

SSP Rainibogi said personnel in the north were also aiming to create awareness among officers, regarding their safety and the security of their properties especially during the festive season.

"Officers are also observing wellness this month, refraining from the consumption of yaqona, alcohol and smoking," she said.

"This is part of the organisation's build-up for the upcoming fitness test for the final quarter where officers are tested on their level of fitness."
