Police install CCTV cameras at park

THE police last Friday launched the installation of CCTV cameras at the popular My Suva Park along the Nasese sea wall stretch.

In launching the monitoring system, Police Commissioner Major-General (Ret) Ben Groenewald said the initiative was of particular importance given the number of families and individuals who frequented the area daily.

"I learn that the My Suva Park offers a variety of recreational activities for all ages and is increasingly growing in popularity with increasing volume of visits from members of the public," Maj-Gen (Ret) Groenewald said.

"I applaud the concept behind this initiative.

"It is consistent with recreational concepts in major urban centres around the globe, facilitating dedicated spaces for families and individuals to escape from their mundane daily business and work."

He said it was important community members worked closely with the police to make those efforts more effective.

"Community policing is an interactive process between the police and the community, to mutually identify and resolve community problems.

"The community, through this initiative, becomes an active partner by identifying local policing needs and it is no longer a passive recipient of police services."
