ACTING Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan has asked his officers in the North to poise themselves for the major development projects scheduled for their area of operation this year.

Speaking to his men during the division's fourth quarter parade in Labasa yesterday, Mr Narayan reminded them of the Prime Minister's recent words during his recent tour to the division.

"Government is finally unleashing the economic potential for the Northern Division so you should take your cue from there and implement the right strategies to assist government," he said.

"Your role is more demanding so the onus is on you to know your area of operation well.

"New challenges such as climate change and relocation projects recently announced by government that will be undertaken will impact your policing landscape and you must be forward-thinking with the implementation of your strategies."

Reflecting on the region's performance during the last quarter, Mr Narayan told his men they had managed to reduce crime against women by 88 per cent while crimes against children were reduced by 80 per cent as per their Key Performance Indicator (KPI) for the last quarter.

He said this was a reflection of the good effort by police in the region, adding that police managed to reduce the crime rate by 24 per cent compared KPI's benchmark of 10 per cent.
