Awareness on drugs

Mere Naleba
Tuesday, April 22, 2014

A LARGE crowd gathered at the Valelevu grounds yesterday to be part of an awareness campaign conducted by the Fiji Police Force Drug Unit.

The awareness programs saw many children, youths and adults taking part in many sporting activities and were also educated on the various drugs believed to be in Fiji as well as its effects on human beings.

The awareness program also featured the Police Jazz Band playing a few numbers for the delighted parishioners of the Nadera Catholic Parish and other members of the public that gathered at the grounds.

The program was also part of the Duavata Community Policing which highlights the importance of working together with members of the community to curb criminal activities in various communities in the country.

In a press statement, spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the program was to promote and strengthen community ties with the force.

"We are working with religious organisations to create awareness on major issues of concern," Ms Naisoro said.
