The Fiji Police Force has increased their patrols at the 2012 Hibiscus festival for the protection of the public.
Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro they are hopeful this will continue over the next few days with operations being stepped up as we near the end of the festival.
Naisoro said officers will be patrolling the streets of Suva in numbers as various events are also coinciding with the Hibiscus involving students, to ensure an incident-free two-week holiday for our children.
Besides enjoying the food, laughter and fun, the public also have access to essential services like medical checks, call centres and police clearance at their relevant booths at Albert Park.
At the police booth, Naisoro said they also continue to advocate for other issues like sexual assault, traffic and drugs.
