FIJI’S Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho has reminded members of the public to be security conscious because their personal safety started with them.

He made the plea as the country enters the festive season in anticipation of the increased level of social activities over the coming weeks.

As police beef up operations in major towns and cities to counter any rise in opportunistic crimes such as petty theft, the head of the Force has urged every individual to assist by being alert and vigilant.

“We have increased our footprints in Suva and have pushed forward manpower from Headquarters, other units and districts,” Brig-Gen Qiliho said.

“We will make every attempt to provide the conducive environment for everyone to enjoy the nightlife in Suva, but we will need everyone to also cooperate and understand that their personal security begins first and foremost with themselves.”
