A GROUP of police officers sacrificed their time to help clean up a special home that's home to victims of sexual-related cases in Labasa.

The team of women who are based at the Labasa Police Station was at the Salvation Army Home early Saturday morning for the clean up program.

Divisional Police Commander North Assistant Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi said the clean up was part of the directive for women to deal with sexual-related crimes.

"This is part of reaching out to victims and building a closer and stronger relationship with them.

"The home has been of great assistance to the police in that they have always taken up our requests to house victims," ASP Rainibogi said.

"We will always be grateful to them for their support to the police over the past many years," she said.

She added that women officers had been out at schools holding awareness programs to students and teachers over sexual violence-related issues.

"These victims need our motherly love and support and it is a good opportunity for us, as women officers to expand and broaden our knowledge to know what these victims go through," ASP Rainibogi said.

"We will also reach out to communities for awareness programs and fight the social ill that has affected our innocent children and women," she said.
