LAUTOKA citizens have been assured that their privacy will be respected and not invaded.
The assurance from Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua came as the city launched five closed-circuit television cameras yesterday.
Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua said the focus was on keeping citizens and businesses safe.
"This is about safety and security," he said.
"It is about ensuring our children, workers, students, the community and visitors to Lautoka are able to carry out their duties and enjoy their time here in a safe manner."
Lautoka, Ba and Tavua special administrator Praveen Bala said the Lautoka City Council invested $45,000 in the project.
"Your safety and security is paramount to the council," he said.
"And I assure everybody that their privacy will always be respected and maintained at all times.
"The installation of these cameras, which is a partnership between the council and the Fiji Police Force, is about having a city where citizens and visitors can enjoy themselves and freely conduct their business without fear."
Mr Bala said five more cameras would be installed before the end of the year and that cameras would also be installed in Ba and Tavua next year.
