Students found with drugs on school premises

The Fiji Police Force discovered drugs in two school premises this past week.

In the first case, a 17-year-old student was found with dried leaves believed to be marijuana on school premises.

The matter is being investigated by Nausori Police.

In Lautoka, white substances believed to be cocaine were found on another school premises allegedly belonging to a 17-year-old student.

The substances have been sent for analysis.

Assistant Commissioner of Police – Operations, (ACP) Livai Driu is urging parents and guardians to talk to their children about the consequences of drug use as well as other harmful substances.

He stresses the need for children to be constantly reminded of the implications drugs have on their health, education and future, and while Police and other stakeholders are doing their best to spread awareness on the harmful effects of drugs, parents and guardians must also reinforce a similar message at home.

Meanwhile, ACP Driu said that it is encouraging to see the change in mindsets, as more people are coming forward with information to assist law enforcement.
