In its ef­fort to raise aware­ness in the com­mu­nity, the Fiji Po­lice Force has set up a Po­lice Spe­cial Re­sponse Unit in Nabua, that is ex­pected to en­hance the work they con­tinue to do around the coun­try.

Po­lice spokesper­son, Ana Naisoro said: “The con­cept is be­ing pushed for­ward and tri­alled in heav­ily densely pop­u­lated ar­eas to as­sist divi­sional op­er­a­tions.

“Since ac­quir­ing the con­tainer, which has been trans­formed into a mo­bile op­er­a­tions unit, it has come equipped with cam­eras whereby the Cen­tral Com­mand can also have a live feed of what is hap­pen­ing on the ground,” Ms Naisoro said.

Res­i­dent, Jemesa Vadai, 45, has wel­comed this ini­tia­tive to set up a com­mand cen­tre in this area.

“This setup will greatly ben­e­fit res­i­dents who live along this area. This move by Po­lice will counter the crime that hap­pens around here,” he said.

“We tremen­dously ap­pre­ci­ate the work be­ing done here by Po­lice to curb th­ese so­cial ills in our com­mu­ni­ties.”

Many Fi­jians liv­ing around Mead Road, De­lainabua, Bayview Heights, Na­madi Heights and sur­round­ing ar­eas have wel­comed this move by Po­lice.

Po­lice have ac­knowl­edged the sup­port of in­ter-is­land freight ser­vices that have sup­ported its ef­fort by of­fer­ing their ser­vices of mov­ing the con­tainer free of charge.
