Act­ing Deputy Di­vi­sional Po­lice Com­mis­sioner North­ern, Ke­mueli Bale­drokadroka told those present at the Cakau­drove Pro­vin­cial Meet­ing that he hopes bru­tal­ity against Po­lice doesn’t hap­pen in the North. “This is some­thing that is hap­pen­ing in Viti Levu. Po­lice of­fi­cers are be­ing abused by the pub­lic and we hope that this never hap­pens here,” Act­ing Deputy DPC Bale­drokadroka said.

“The Po­lice offic- ers are your chil­dren whose only hope is to bring peace and pros­per­ity to the na­tion.”

Act­ing Deputy DPC Bale­drokadroka said that with the Gen­eral Elec­tion ap­proach­ing, they hoped that peo­ple do not re­sort to at­tack­ing Po­lice of­fi­cers.

“We hope that our chil­dren in the Po­lice Force, es­pe­cially those in the Po­lice sta­tions and Po­lice posts in the prov­ince are looked af­ter.”

Tack­ling the rape is­sue

On the is­sue of rape, the Act­ing Deputy DPC Bale­drokadroka said: “Is some­thing that we re­alise can­not be solved until and un­less we work to­gether as a na­tion.

“We hope that this is some­thing we can look into be­cause it is hap­pen­ing to our chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and women.”

Mon­i­tor­ing chil­dren

Act­ing Deputy DPC Bale­drokadroka also said par­ents should en­sure that their chil­dren are in school. “There are times when par­ents don’t care about their chil­dren not go­ing to school. Par­ents need to en­sure they know the where­abouts of their chil­dren. This is one of the main fac­tors of the in­creased crime rate,” he said. “Par­ents must also en­sure that they mon­i­tor the so­cial me­dia use of their chil­dren be­cause there are some con­tents on­line that are not suit­able for them.”
