Police to monitor truancy

AS the new school year gets underway police have also started their truancy operation to monitor students loitering around the Capital City during school hours.

Central Division deputy commanding officer Assistant Superintendent of Police Livai Driu said the operation started yesterday and will continue throughout the year.

"We will have officers in uniform and in civilian monitoring all amusement centres, internet cafes, cinemas and even shops," ASP Driu said.

"We will be very strict and any student found roaming around during school hours without any appropriate reason will be referred back to their respective schools and we will also ensure their parents are made aware of their whereabouts."

Police are urging all parents to assist children in attending school, and internet café and other business owners to ensure no students are found loitering on their premises.

The Fiji Police understands that students in the city areas would still continue to be seen in the first week as some would still be doing back to school shopping.

However, police will continue close monitoring of popular student hangouts to ensure no students are found on such premises.
