ALTHOUGH cases of cybercrime may not be common in the North, it has not deterred police from working closely with owners of internet shops.

At the opening of the Wananavu Internet Shop and group of companies, divisional police commander northern Senior Superintendent of Police Naulumatua Lutunacaucau applauded the initiative of company owners.

"Their business is expanding and involving police in the opening of their internet shop speaks of a good relationship we have," he said.

"It also speaks of how we need to work together to fight and prevent cybercrime which is known as a white collar crime.

"This is important and we have a network with the business people in the North including internet shop owners."

SSP Naulumatua said crybercrime was a sophisticated level of crime and having police work closely with owners of internet businesses would strengthen their network.

Shopowner, Sunil Deo said he realised the importance of working closely with the police.

"That is why we invited the head of police in the North to open our new internet shop.

"We need to work closely with them so we can help curb crime together and even cybercrime," he said.

"We will also support police with their work through donations.

"We will give them a computer to use at the police post at the Labasa Airport once they open the new police post there."
