The Raiwai Crime Prevention Committee is concerned with the level of crime in Raiwai and Raiwaqa.
Committee Chairman Jo Rasilasila says they have decided to seek the assistance of the Fiji Police Force and the Community Policing team in creating as much awareness as possible.
He says together with Police they entered these clusters and the officers talked to the communities about sexual offences, drugs and juvenile issues.
He adds that the Committee has completed a six day program where awareness was conducted in six locations within the Raiwaqa and Raiwai area.
Rasilasila says they were fortunate to have the Fiji Corrections officers present so that people heard firsthand the consequences of getting involved in criminal activities.
He says they are now holding weekly meetings with Raiwaqa Police and are planning to launch a major campaign in the coming months.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
