SECURITY at Subrail Park during the Duavata Northern Crime Prevention Carnival continues to be the fundamental task of personnel at the Labasa Police Station.

Head of security at the carnival ground Inspector Uate Patemosi said since the beginning of the carnival, there had been no disturbances of any kind from the 3000 members of the public who continued to flock to Subrail Park every night.

Insp Patemosi said the mood in the ground was one of fun and celebration as people took advantage of the amusement rides and entertainment provided during in this week-long carnival.

"We are expecting more people to turn up as the carnival ends on Saturday night," he said.

"Business seems to be really good for food vendors at the ground and employees of both the government and private sector flock in during the day time to spend their lunch hour in the ground.

"Personnel continue to change shifts at the police booth in the ground for patrols and crowd control duties daily."

Meanwhile, stall vendor from Seaqaqa Meresiana Vugawai said the sale at her stall was proceeding well since day one.

Ms Vugawai said food stalls always ran out of food because of the number of people who turned up to the ground during day and at night.

Naduri Women's Crime Prevention committee president Filomena Katonivere said the women in their stall had been making more than $300 daily from the sale of food.
