More police presence

TRAFFIC officers in Labasa will now increase their presence on the streets every morning and afternoons in a bid to control traffic jams.

Divisional police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau yesterday said they recently experienced a shortage in manpower which had now stabilised.

This follows observations made by members of the public on how vehicles queued up on the streets of Labasa almost every morning and afternoon.

"Now that we have an adequate number of traffic officers, we will be monitoring the town daily," he said.

"Motorists have also been advised to drive safely and carefully as we are doing everything we can to ensure that traffic jams are controlled."

Meanwhile, SSP Lutunacaucau visited community posts and police stations in Bua and Cakaudrove last week as part of his official quarterly visit.

He said the visit also coincided with that of the force's chaplain, to officers in the North.
