THE continued attacks on Police officers will not be condoned and the organisation is not going to take the matter lightly.

The Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu stressed this in a statement issued today after three people  were arrested and are in custody for separate attacks against Police officers in the last 24hours

saying “If you want to do the crime then be man enough to face the consequences.”

“Threatening the lives of any of our officers who are executing their duties will not be taken lightly,” ACP Tudravu said.

He said it was fortunate that no officer was seriously injured or worse killed, as this is the reality of policing where officers are risking their lives every day and night.

“If you’re not happy with the conduct of any of our officers let us know, but if you break the law, don’t take your frustrations out by threatening to kill them just because they’re doing their job which is to enforce the law.

“We have faced situations recently where communities have rallied together to protect those who have attacked our officers and we will not hesitate to arrest those who are perverting the course of justice.”
