The Fiji Police Force is once again urging parents and guardians, to closely monitor the movements of their children, with the school holidays underway.
Reports have been received from the Hibiscus Grounds venue – of children as young as two, being separated from their parents. On Saturday, up to ten children were in the care of officers, as they were lost in the crowd.
All were reunited with their parents, however it still is a major concern that children are being separated, and better care needs to be directed towards their safety.
Chief Operations Officer – Maretino Qiolevu said, personal safety is also a concern, as there have been two reports of ‘pick-pocketing’, which has been dealt with.
ACP Qiolevu said officers are on patrol at the grounds, and have managed to keep criminal elements at bay.
Social and Sporting events are happening around the country in which children are participating in, and Police is once again urging everyone, to help keep them safe.
