Fiji Police will launch a blue light camp in Kadavu today with the aim of fighting crime and reducing urban drift.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro told FijiLive the camp, with 150 students, will teach students about crime prevention and awareness, and the importance of completing their education so that they can become successful citizens.

The schools include Vunisea Secondary School, Richmond Methodist High School and Kadavu Provincial Secondary School.

Speaking at the Eastern Development Board Meeting last week, Commissioner Eastern Lieutenant Netani Rika had said they will target youths in the fight against crime and to reduce urban drift.

Lt Col Rika had also said they will try to get youths to remain in the village and also try to get unemployed Kadavu youths in Suva back to the island.
