August 14, 2017 3:30 am
The Police Force will be pushing forward manpower this week to ensure children are able to enjoy the various events, sporting activities as well as their holidays without major incidents.
Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro, says operations in all divisions have factored in the increased number of events, with the main focus on the safety of our children.
Naisoro, says safety at home is also paramount and it is imperative that children be left with a responsible adult.
She says the trend of children reported missing is also common during the school holidays.
Officers will be conducting patrols at the locations where schools are being billeted and with a number of events taking place, the onus is on teachers and parents accompanying students to be alert and vigilant of their movements.
The public are also urged to secure their properties before leaving for any event.
