Friday, August 18, 2017

POLICE officers in the Northern Division have been reminded to abide by the traditional structure in iTaukei villages during outreach programs.

Speaking during the community policing workshop in Labasa yesterday, director community policing Senior Superintendent of Police Waqa Cavuilati said the traditional customary structures needed to be respected and recognised.

SSP Cavuilati told police officers that it was always important for them to use traditional hierarchy such as chiefs and elders who had a high level of influence on people when approaching these communities.
