Fiji Police has urged members of the public to be more vigilant as second term school holidays starts next week.

“The public should take extra precautionary measures during the holidays as major carnivals and school activities are being organised during that period of time,” Director operations Rusiate Tudravu said.

On the same note, Tudravu elaborated on the rising number of cases of domestic disputes which has led to an increase  of suicide and attempted suicide cases this year. A total of 157 cases of suicide and attempted suicide cases have been recorded so far compared to 124 cases at the same period of time last year.

“We are also alerting parents to be alert of the whereabouts of their children as often during these holidays the number of missing people increase”, Tudravu said.

Police is also meeting up with night club owners so that underage teenagers do not enter clubs or pubs after Hibiscus," added Tudravu.

“We have stepped up our operations for the safety of all citizens during this festive season."
