There is a need for police foot patrols in hot spot areas of the central business district areas.
With people already doing their shopping for Diwali and Christmas, the Suva Retailers Association is calling for more foot patrols.
Suva Retailers Association President Vinay Kumar says they have been raising concerns with the Fiji Police Force to increase their visibility on the streets.
“What will deter the pick pocketers and all will be the presence of police officers walking around and I think they are working on it and we are been insisting that as busy time approaches they are running out more of the foot patrol officers and that is what we need, we need to see police officers on the streets.”
Meanwhile, Diwali will be celebrated next Thursday.
