POLICE stepped out of their offices to patrol picnic spots around the Northern Division yesterday as part of their Easter weekend operations.

This newspaper caught up with two police constables on patrol at a picnic spot outside Labasa.

Spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said policemen and women were tasked keeping an eye on people enjoying their long weekend break.

Ms Naisoro said water police officers from all stations in the division were out to ensure the public's safety.

Rohit Chand and his family were also part of the crowd that took advantage of the hot Babasiga weather to cool off at Korovatu beach.

Mr Chand said they decided to get out of their house in Siberia and cool down at the picnic spot.

"We brought our children down to this picnic spot and they wasted no time as they headed straight for the sea," he said.

"It is also good to see police officers out here on patrol, it sort of gives us a sense of safety.

"Since it is the beginning of the school holidays and a break away from work, this is a good way of ending the long weekend before we resume our daily routine tomorrow (today)."
