Update: 4:37PM CELEBRATIONS marking International Drug Awareness Day began in Lautoka today as members of the Police Force visited schools to inform students on the dangers of drugs.

Deputy divisional Police Commander West Superintendent of Police Henry Steele visited Jasper Williams Primary School and told the students that many police officers had found children loitering in town during school hours.

They were even indulging in activities like glue sniffing, smoking of cigarettes and drinking sprees, he said.

These children are often brought to the stations where we make contact with their schools and parents for them to come to the police station for a special meeting.

He reminded students that they should say no to drugs at all times.
