Nine juveniles were arrested for both curfew and sport breaches in the past 24 hours.

The number of juveniles that continue to be taken in for COVID-19 related breaches is a concern.

The nine juveniles arrested include a 15 and 16-year-old were found walking around in Delaivalelevu after curfew hours.

Two 17-year-olds were arrested with others as they were found playing basketball along Padam Lala Road.

In Vatuwaqa five youths were arrested for playing touch rugby.

32 people were arrested in the last 24 hours, 17 for sports, and 15 for breach of curfew.

The Southern division recorded 29 arrests, 17 for sports breach, and 12 people arrested for breach of curfew.

Two people from the Western division were arrested for curfew breach while one report was recorded in the East.

The Ministry of Education and Ministry of Women and Children recently highlighted the supervision of children during this difficult time.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho says children need to be monitored.

Parents and guardians must know the movement of children at all times.

Qiliho says children will be home for another few weeks and the onus is on guardians to ensure they are not caught on the wrong side of the law by getting involved in activities that are not only prohibited but potentially life-threatening as COVID-19 is still around us.
