DIVISIONAL police commander northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau has directed community policing personnel to reach out to the cane belt areas with their awareness programs.
His plea follows reports lodged by some farmers in Macuata on how their cane farms were destroyed by fire in the past weeks.
"It's unfortunate to note that some cane farms have been destroyed by fire," he said.
"We are aware of some reports and we also are yet to receive a few others," he said.
"The cane crushing season is just a few days away and it's sad that some farms have been destroyed before they are harvested.
"I have requested community policing personnel to extend their community outreach programs to cane farming communities."
