SAVUSAVU Police Station will work towards enhancing and strengthening their relationship with the communities around the area as part of their strategies in combating crime this year.

Station Officer Savusavu, Inspector Joeli Yabakiono said they had visited villages and settlements identifying projects which they could associate themselves with in the aim of strengthening their relationship with the people they served.

Insp Yabakiono said Savusavu continued to develop as local people and newcomers across the globe settled in the area falling in love with the Hidden Paradise town.

"We have identified that there is a need to get in touch with our customers and to ensure that we had a relationship of trust and confidence with each other," said Insp Yabakiono.

"This for us means that we need to involve ourselves more in their daily lives so to win their trust and confidence. Communities and settlements around Savusavu should notice an influx in the number of visitations by our men and we will be actively working with communities in the formation and our participation in small projects for the betterment of these communities," he said.
