Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho has confirmed that statistics have indicated an increase in the rate of crimes in various communities.
Following serious concerns raised on the increase in the number of attacks and robberies happening in several communities, Qiliho says they’re constantly reposting teams to counter these crimes.
“Yes we go through statistics every month we are seeing a spike, definitely there is a spike and as I’ve just alluded to earlier it could be linked to the type of drugs being taken that could be a driving factor but we are looking at how we are going to posture ourselves to counter that. We have advertised numbers of the command centers if you call a police station sometimes, sometimes the station is overwhelmed.”
People living in these areas continue to live in fear but have come together to form a community group to assist authorities tackle this growing concern.
