The Fiji Police has indicated that they will continue to increase manpower to patrol the streets of Suva in an effort to curb illegal activities which also includes muggings and robberies.
After the recent spate of robberies in the Capital city, Police night patrol has been given a thumbs up by the Suva Retailers Association.
Associations President Vinay Kumar says the safety of the public continues to be of paramount concern and this has led to the commitments by agencies including Police, Suva Retailers Associations and Suva City Council.
“Well this will benefit all retailers not just benefiting our members, we’ve got an extensive members who are based in the Suva CBD, but whoever is not member they are always welcome to become members but this will benefit the whole community that’s just not for us and you know as retailers we do have a social responsibility for that too.”
Meanwhile, Deputy Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu says night operations will continue as they will try and apprehend those involved in muggings and robberies.
“Well what I can say is so far so good, our focus now is not towards us in operations, we are trying to get the reaction from the members of the public and the operations will continue, we’ll try to sustain it through and then keen on changing the number of man-power that are coming in”
Defence Minister Inia Seruiratu has also confirmed that discussions will also be held to link up the existing CCTV cameras to a central location believed to be the Totogo Police Station where police can view and monitor the streets of Suva.
