President of the Methodist Church in Fiji Reverend Dr Epineri Vakadewavosa has pledged the Church, will continue to support all efforts by the Fiji Police Force towards tackling social issues concerning the welfare of all Fijians.

This was re-affirmed by Reverend Vakadewavosa at a meeting with the Fiji Police Chaplain Reverend Superintendent of Police  Waisale Tikowale and the Director Community Policing SSP Isei Vueti at Epworth Building in Suva.

Discussions revolved around how the Church can assist in addressing social problems such as domestic violence, drug abuse, child abuse, gender discrimination and supporting the work of Police officers through their various Church groups, gatherings and Sunday services.

Reverend Tikowale says graduates from the Davuilevu Theological College were also briefed yesterday about the Church's show of support to fighting crime.

Police will set up an awareness program which will rope in church ministers in various divisions and circuits to familiarize themselves with the intentions of the organisation towards combating these social issues.
