Secure properties

Shayal Devi
Saturday, April 19, 2014

PEOPLE are being advised to secure their properties while enjoying this Easter long weekend.

West police media officer Naina Ragigia said police would be out in numbers to keep an eye on things.

"While we may indulge in feasting and merry-making, we must bear in mind the real meaning of Easter and learn to seek forgiveness for our wrongdoings to create a safe and peaceful community," she said.

"We wish to advise road users of the importance of safety on the roads. There will be police radar checks and roadblocks, so the onus will be on individual road users to be mindful of the rules and abide by them.

"Bear in mind there will be zero-tolerance of drunk driving."

Ms Ragigia said families and friends were also advised to be cautious while going on picnic trips and supervise their children accordingly.

"We will also conduct beach patrols to ensure people enjoy their visits to such sites."
