POLICE work is not only about protecting life and property but also ensuring that life is well-lived to its fullest.
This was the message of Savusavu station officer Inspector Joeli Yabakiono to station personnel who took part in a clean-up with members of the Savusavu Town Council yesterday.
The 23 officers and four council employees began their clean-up program at 5.30am from the Tavern Night Club to Nabauto.
"We are here to show the people of Savusavu that we are also concerned about the good health of our citizens apart from our usual role in securing properties and lives," said Insp Yabakiono.
"We are also maintaining the beautiful Hidden Paradise image of this town," he said.
"We are thankful to Savusavu Hospital staff for providing us with gloves and face masks and for the town council of Savusavu for providing us with garbage bags."
Insp Yabakiono also encouraged the people of Savusavu to take good care of their environment during this festive season.
"Our message to the people of Savusavu is to take precautionary measures during this festive season, especially in ensuring their properties and also the lives of the young ones within their care," he said.
"Parents are to take good care and be aware of the whereabouts of their children who are out on school break at all times and ensure they are not exposed to any form of harm."
