Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
I wish to thank the Lautoka police department for their foot patrol officers.
Please be visible at all times because your presence is a huge deterrent to any would be crook. And please keep a look out on fictitious beggars, con men and women, pick pockets and sly business people.
May I suggest that you also walk into super markets as you patrol and have a look around, you may just deter shoplifters by your presence. You represent all of society and if you happen to see expired goods on the shelves take note and report it.
Go and sit with taxi drivers and listen to what they have to say and take note. Taxi drivers are a reservoir of information, listen to them but filter what you hear.
But thank you for being visible in Lautoka City.
