City's crime rate plea

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

SUVA City Council acting CEO Bijay Chand is pleading for the citizens of Suva to work closely with the Duavata Policing Unit as they aim to further reduce the crime rate in the Capital City.

Mr Chand said since SCC's relationship with the Duavata Policing Unit in August 3, 2013, they had noticed a reduction in crime in the Central Division.

"It was because of the citizens of Suva working closely with the Duavata Policing Unit that we have seen the reduction in crime," Mr Chand said. "And we need to keep this relationship strong to ensure that we have a safe and crime free Suva."

Yesterday the Duavata Policing Unit handed a declaration certificate, a token of appreciation for their work together.

"This is also focusing on the future, especially 2014, preparations for elections and the development of our nation," Duavata divisional manager central Suva Inspector Sanaila Biau said.

Mr Chand assured the Duavata Policing Unit of their support and co-operation for the year.

"This is a great initiative and we would like to see the crime rate in Suva further reduced.

"Through this initiative we can ensure that we provide citizens of Suva, ratepayers and visitors a safe place.

"We have seen a lot of co-operation from the community, working closely with police in crime reporting and we need to keep this up in the future."
