POLICE recruits got involved with the community on Monday when they cleaned up Wainibokasi Hospital.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the exercise was to strengthen the relationship between police and the community.

"A group of police recruits spent the whole day yesterday cleaning the compound of the Wainibokasi Hospital," Insp Sokomuri said.

He said the recruits were also assisted by their instructors as they mowed the lawns, cleared blocked drains, scrubbed the floor and mended the fences.

Insp Sokomuri said such an initiative undertaken by the police officers should be supported by local residents who were served by the hospital.

He said cleaning and maintaining a clean and healthy environment of a hospital was very important.

"The recruits were being reminded of their responsibility as citizens in looking after and supporting services provided by government.

"In the evening the recruits were divided into seven groups and visited seven villages in the area conducting awareness programs."
