Band entertains crowd

THE hot sun failed to deter the crowd that gathered at Labasa Town's main street yesterday for the opening of the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival.

And the melodious tune of the different local songs played by the police band lured some women on to the street dancing with band members.

Contestants waved and greeted the crowd as they walked through the town.

More than a thousand people turned up to also watch other activities organised by the festival committee.

The dog show showed the crowd how these animals help police with investigations.

A drug pack hidden under a cone was easily taken out by a police dog — much to the amazement of the crowd.

Carnival chairman Satish Kumar said the week-long event would not only bring people together but emphasise the importance of fighting crime.

"It is our role to fight crime and create a safe environment for all. The police cannot do it alone so this week we will share ideas and talk about ways of curbing crime in our northern island," he said.

"We are blessed to have the police support and their involvement has made our annual event a success."
