THIRTY more communities have been identified for the implementation of the Zero Tolerance Violence Free Community Campaign.

Confirming this in a statement, Social Welfare Minister Dr Jiko Luveni said the communities were identified by the police.

Dr Luveni said the ministry would work with stakeholders to carry out awareness training and monitor the changes in these communities.

"The Zero Tolerance Violence Free Campaign that started with just two communities in 2009 has expanded with currently 68 communities that have become strong advocates of violence-free communities in Fiji," she said.

"In each of these communities, a gatekeepers committee has been formed and have undergone eight to 12 months of training to learn about the reporting procedures and responding to cases of violence."

Dr Luveni said from police reports, the ministry had witnessed a reduction in criminal activities.
