LABASA and Savusavu special administrator Vijay Chand hailed the recent official visit by the divisional police commander north Acting Senior Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi to Savusavu town.

The town administrator's office and its management were pleased with the visit. Speaking in Savusavu Town during her first ever courtesy call, acting SSP Rainibogi assured the business people of her intentions to make the town free of crime.

"The Fiji Police Force continues to strive in making our towns crime-free and investor-friendly to boost investments within our localities," she said.

"In order to have an investor-friendly environment it is fundamental to reduce crime rates so that investors can find confidence in establishing their business within our localities.

"We are assuring you that we are here to see that this is achieved and we all need to play our roles and work together to see that this dream comes into fruition."

Acting SSP Rainibogi said police in the north would work with communities in supporting income-generating projects so that people could improve their living standards and welfare.

"Crime can be reduced once people are satisfied and we are working closely with them to see that they are financially stable in order to stamp out the need for the commission of crimes.

"We will be sitting soon with our divisional crime committees to ensure the funds collected from last year's North Crime Prevention are diverted into community projects in order to achieve our aim of improving communities and stamping out crime."
