The Fiji Police Force continues to work towards reducing crime, and one of its major campaigns is to work hand in hand with the public.
The week long Duavata Police Northern Crime Prevention Carnival that ended in Labasa last night, was a joint effort between the police and the community to promote better relations and reduce crime.
Chief Guest and Local Government Minister Parveen Kumar says the Carnival which began 3 years ago… is one of the success stories of the Force.
Kumar says the government has invested heavily in better equipping the Police Force.
“Government continues to increase its budget, each year, in order to address crime and we have invested heavily this year, in technology to help the police solve crime, coordinate their efforts, fight international crimes and keep people safe in their beds at night.”
The Duavata Carnival this year featured 8 queens, 6 Kings, 3 Turaga, 4 Teens and 5 princesses.
Miss Taveuni Elena Ramabuke won the main title of Miss Duavata 2015 while Josefa Ravula – Mr. Tanoa Electrical was crowned King Duavata 2015.
