The Divisional Police Commander North Senior Superintendent of Police Kemueli Baledrokadroka has thanked the northern communities for keeping Christmas celebrations safe.

In an interview yesterday, SSP Baledrokadroka said police did not receive any major reports relating to crime or road accidents.

“All good during the Christmas and we thank everyone for working with police to keep the community safe as everyone enjoyed the event of the birth of our Lord,” he said.

“Police continued with patrol on our roads, towns and residential areas even during the night to ensure safety for all.

“It was indeed a busy weekend especially in Damodar City where people were doing late night shopping at Extra Supermarket, so our police caravan is based there.”

But besides the busy evenings, SSP Baledrokadroka said everyone respected the law and supported his team in keeping the communities safe. He has pleaded for a repeat in the upcoming New Year’s weekend.

“To all the communities in Vanua Levu, we will need your support again during the New Year’s weekend as we welcome 2023,” SSP Baledrokadroka said.

“A lot of parties, we know, will be held to welcome the new year as we farewell 2023, so please enjoy responsibly.

“Family members, if you see your loved ones getting drunk, take the car keys away from them if they are driving.”
