Carnival to invigorate initiative

Salaseini Moceiwai
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

THE upcoming Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival will be a platform to invigorate the community policing initiative in Labasa.

Divisional police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau yesterday said the event would be an opportunity to strengthen the initiative.

"The momentum of the community policing model has slowed down and with this carnival, we expect to strengthen it," SSP Lutunacaucau said.

"Our focus is on restoring the energy that was once felt when the initiative was launched in the North. Right now, we will focus on reviving the initiative in Labasa before we reach out to the other districts in the Northern Division.

"We will be beefing up awareness programs and crime prevention talks and the carnival is just the place for such programs."

SSP Lutunacaucau said they were working with the committee members to spread the crime prevention gospel. The carnival launch will be held at the Banana Leaf Restaurant tonight.
