Police heightens presence this Christmas

Monday, December 23, 2013

Update: 3:43PM THE Fiji Police Force will be beefing up its presence across the divisions in the hope of making this festive season a safe and incident free one for all Fijians.

Police chief of operations ACP Rusiate Tudravu said officers from all divisional headquarters will be sent out to help their comrades on the frontline with focus on not only the urban centres but in peri-urban communities.

We anticipate a lot of movement across the divisions and homes will be vacant making it the ideal time for criminal elements to strike, he said, and called on the general public to keep their valuables safe and not to carry large sums of money.

He said business houses could also seek assistance from the Police when transporting large sums of money when the need arises.
