POLICE officers were out in numbers last night to ensure the safety of the general public who gathered in the capital city to welcome the New Year.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said 100 officers including a dog unit were deployed in the Central Division to ensure the safety of the general public and also to track down on those criminal elements trying to take advantage of the situation.

She said police officers and other office workers of the Fiji Police Force were on patrol last night.

A large number of police officers were present at the Annual Fiji Street Party at the Albert Park in Suva.
