Police Commissioner Brigadier General, Sitiveni Qiliho, says there has been a decrease in the number of criminal activities this time around when compared to the same period last year.
Qiliho says they want to keep it this way and go into the New Year with improved statistics.
He says the Force aims to fulfill its oath to provide better services to the community.
“That’s the ultimate aim and we cannot do it if we don’t have the support of the community we can’t just walk out there and sniff the air and know where the criminals are – we rely on the information that is coming from the community. And I must admit some of our officers tend not to take this information seriously but we are working hard to change that mindset, we are more into intelligence driven operations, targeted operations based on sound intelligence – rather than just going out there and being just visible.”
The Police Commissioner says they are taking targeted approaches in order to fight smartly against the criminals.
