THE community contribution towards the establishment of the police post at the airport in Labasa shows great dedication from the people.

Police Commissioner Ben Groenewald thanked the community of Waiqele, taxidrivers, airline and airport staff members for working with his team in setting up the police post.

He said such support showed that residents in the area meant business with police in combatting criminal activities.

Mr Groenewald added that having a police post in the airport would also create an assuring and safe gesture to visitors.

"After the elections, we will have more visitors coming in to the North so this police post will guide them as well.

"We can also expect more investors to come in to the North after the elections so the presence of our team in this airport is important.

"I must thank everyone who has worked with my team to have this police post here."
