Heavy police presence

HEAVY police presence within Lautoka City yesterday ensured that tourists who disembarked from the MV Voyager of the Seas were left unbothered by street sellers.

This was the result of a community policing initiative that authorities in the Sugar City implemented after the increase in visits by cruise liners.

Lautoka Chamber of Commerce and Industry administrator Mohammed Salim said a committee was formed with other stakeholders to ensure that the visitors were safe.

"We joined with the Lautoka Community Policing Committee and the Lautoka City Council to provide more protection for the visitors and for businesses," he said.

"There was a large number of police officers stationed at all outlets that the visitors went to.

"This is because we wanted to create an environment where they would be safe and feel confident to walk around and browse the shops without being hassled."
