New police vehicles will help curb crime

The Fiji Police Force is adamant in keeping the crime rate as low as possible.
Speaking at the handing over of nine new police vehicles in Labasa yesterday, Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho says the new vehicles should help police in Vanua Levu curb crime.
Last year, the Northern Division recorded the lowest number of crime compared to the other divisions.
Qiliho says, the Fiji Police Force wants this to be further reduced this year.
“We are here for the public and these vehicles will definitely contribute to better management and crime control in the area – especially with governments Look North Police there are lots of investments, the roads have been done up, there is more frequency in shipping to the North, more aircrafts coming – so there is a lot of movement – and that comes with elements and that can get into mischief – so the vehicles being deployed here will contribute positively to police work in the North.”
The new leased vehicles are being distributed to all the police stations around Vanua Levu.
