With aggravated robbery and burglary cases going down more than 30 percent for November, Police are urging the public not to be complacent.
Police Commissioner, Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho, says everyone needs to do their part and ensure measures are in place to secure their possessions and properties.
“But let’s not drop our guard, we’re moving now into the festive season, there will be parties, people will be leaving homes to go to their friend’s place, relatives place, going to the villagers, please tell your neighbours that you are going to look after your residences, if not, if there is other relatives or friends around, get somebody to come and stay home.”
Operation Yadrayadravaki was activated at the beginning of this month as means to counter the crime wave, as over the last three years the highest number of criminal activities were recorded in November.
The Commissioner is also urging parents and guardians to be aware of where their children are at all times, who they’re with and the activities they’re involved in.
