Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said they had drawn up security strategies aimed at ensuring a crime free week, following the opening of the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival at Subrail Park in Labasa yesterday.

"So we have planned that out and our presence in public will also be increased," he said.

"We understand that people have travelled from as far Cakaudrove and Bua to be part of the carnival so we are urging people to work with us.

"In such carnivals, there have been cases of children wandering from their parents and vice versa so as adults, parents please do stay with your children while out in the grounds," he said.

"The police will also be around in large numbers at the grounds so we will keep a lookout for children walking around alone.

"All we want is a safe week for a successful carnival because it is a time where the people of Vanua Levu come together to spread the word of fighting crime."
