Go straight home

Shayal Devi

STUDENTS should head straight home and not loiter around in town when schools close early, West police media liaison officer Naina Ragigia has warned.

Mrs Ragigia said police have been monitoring the movements of students as a result of the disturbances caused by bad weather conditions.

"We know there are a lot of temptations when these students come into town — internet shops, cinema, and amusement centres," Mrs Ragigia said, adding that police could monitor the movement of students on recently installed CCTV cameras.

"For those students who do not go home immediately, we will bring them in to the police station and call their parents to pick them up."

She said students also needed to make good choices.

"Some of these young people might want to cross flooded rivers and creeks.

"We ask that they refrain from doing this for their own safety."

She said police teams were already stationed in various districts as a response to the bad weather warnings.
