Improve service to control crime rate

POLICE officers in the Northern Division have been urged to improve their service in an effort to control the increasing number of criminal activities in the area.

Divisional Police Commander Northern Acting Senior Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi said officers needed to be alert and inquisitive at all times so their duties were carried out accordingly.

Acting SSP Rainibogi made the comments while visiting officers on Taveuni and Rabi Island last week.

"This year, we will work to the best of our abilities to make sure that the level of criminal activities is reduced and we will collaborate with the public to make this happen," she said.

"It's time to work efficiently and effectively because the vulnerable ones in society are becoming victims of such criminal activities. Majority of the crimes committed in the country are recorded from the north and the south and it's only proper we act now before it's too late."

Acting SSP Rainibogi said fighting against crime was not a one man's job. Instead, she said, it required a collaborative effort from the community.

"We are calling on members of the public to support us in our work and help us in building a region that is free from crime."
