ALL police officers, communities and stakeholders must make every effort to ensure Fiji is safe and secure from those who are bent to take advantage from the country's porous border.

These were the comments of Minister for Defence Joketani Cokanasiga in his opening address at the Fiji Police Community Policing Symposium at Nasova on Thursday.

Addressing divisional police commanders, officers and those manning various community posts, he said a safer Fiji would be a haven for business entrepreneurs, visitors and people of

Fiji.

"To maintain an environment that is safe and secure, as well as promote an enabling and supportive environment for economic growth, needs all our co-operation," Mr Cokanasiga said.

He said criminal activities emphasised the need for better community networking to eliminate those evolving trends.
