Tighter laws needed

GOVERNMENT departments including the police cannot fight crime alone, says acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu.

He said the impact of globalisation in policing was enormous.

"Technology has not only made lives of law-abiding citizens easy, criminals and even people in positions of trust and authority have also used it to their felonious advantage," he said.

"In view of this, it is imperative for the police and the community to adopt an integrated approach to develop strategies to counter such complex and sophisticated criminal landscape."

Mr Bolalevu told members of the newly-formed Labasa Airport Crime Prevention Committee that government needed the support of stakeholders and the community as the balancing factor.

"Establishing private-public partnership is the way forward to economic growth and development.

"This means effective implementation of the tighter laws and a more effective police force whose investigative capacity continues improving by the day," said Mr Bolalevu.
