Public to report assault to police headquarters

POLICE have advised the public in Lautoka to visit the divisional headquarters if they have complaints to make.

The advice comes in response to people who've highlighted through the media their grievances about treatment at Lautoka Police Station in the past week.

West police media liaison Naina Ragigia said those who wish to report alleged assaults by the police were to file a complaint at the headquarters and not the Lautoka Police Station.

"All complaints will be registered with all necessary investigation procedures followed," Mrs Ragigia said.

This newspaper received three reports in the past week; already two policemen have been suspended pending an investigation and Acting Commissioner Ravi Narayan warned that such behaviour would not be tolerated.
