The Fiji Police Force will be taking a strong stand against those who continue to disregard and disrespect the rule of law.
Operations will be beefed up towards the end of the week and in to the weekends as the continuous call for people to be mindful and responsible for the way they conduct themselves in a public place continues to fall on deaf ears.
Officers have been directed to arrest those found drinking in public places, being drunk and disorderly and those found in to be drunk and incapable.
We had previously taken a more tolerant approach, however in light of the latest incidents highlighted by the media, officers will be adopting a zero tolerance stand on such behaviour.
Operations will also be ensuring businesses are operating within the hours permitted as per their business licences.
