2018 Coke Games: Fiji Police operation focuses on safety

Update: 1:27PM THE Fiji Police Force has put in place measures to ensure the 2018 Coca-Cola Games is incident-free.

And it has also emphasised its call to parents, students and supporters to enjoy the games responsibly.

Chief Operations Officer Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Maretino Qiolevu said the operations would not only be looking at the element of safety at the Games venue but other events leading up to the athletes’ big day.

“Students from other divisions will be traveling to Suva, which is why the operations are not solely focused at the ANZ Stadium, but there is the safety of students and parents billeted at various schools where we will be conducting regular patrols,” Acting ACP Qiolevu said.

“The traffic division will have maximum visibility on our roads with officers out on motorbikes monitoring the behaviour of road users, particularly the practice of waving flags from moving vehicles and in general the safety of all road users.”

Acting ACP Qiolevu said the Games venue would be closely monitored by various specialised units.
