THERE will be an increase in police presence in the capital with thousands of students expected to converge to Suva for the two-day secondary schools athletics finals.

Police chief operations officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu said the focus would be on ensuring the two-day event was crime free and the games concluded without violence.

"The K-9 unit and officers from the Police Special Response Unit are tasked with monitoring the event," said ACP Tudravu.

"Don't indulge in any illegal activities at the games venue. Students and supporters have to show good sportsmanship and accept whatever the outcomes of the two-day event may be.

"Similarly, operations will be focusing on the situation after the games with a number of after function events being held in the Capital City."

ACP Tudravu says parents and guardians have to keep tabs on their children's whereabouts.

"Ongoing consultation with owners of nightclub operators and other popular nightspot hangouts are continuing with officers from the Central Division," said ACP Tudravu.

"This is to ensure minors are not allowed into nightclubs and police are informed if young children are at internet cafes in the early hours of the morning.

"Police officers will continue to be deployed into the early hours of Sunday morning and people are being urged to enjoy themselves within the ambits of the law."
