Acting Police Chief Operations Officer ACP Maretino Qiolevu has stressed to parents and guardians that Police will not hesitate to lay charges of negligence in the event a child falls victim to any harm during the adverse weather situation currently being experienced in some parts of the country.
He says that officers in the Western Division during their visitation have spent a lot of time telling children not to swim in rivers adding that this is extremely worrying considering all the advisories issued and yet Police find children still swimming in swollen rivers.
