Ratu Navula College is the latest school to sign up for the Crime Stoppers Fiji Scholastic Program.
Launching the school's partnership with the Fiji Police Force through the Scholastic Program was the Deputy Divisional Police Commander West Superintendent of Police (SP) Aisake Kafoa.
SP Kafoa acknowledged the Principal and staff for opening the school doors to the Fiji Police Force to strengthen cooperation for a safer learning environment for students.
“Through the Crime Stoppers Scholastic program we want to empower you with knowledge, empower you to make informed decisions, empower you to make the right choices that will benefit your educational journey”.
The Deputy Divisional Police Commander West also used the opportunity to speak on the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
“You are growing up in a hyper-connected world and are constantly bombarded with unfiltered and sometimes uncensored information that can influence your decisions in life.
The national theme is - Understanding and Sharing Facts on Drugs: Save Lives, and is centered on combating misinformation by sharing real facts on drugs”.
Also on hand to badge the School’s scholastic board were former Ratu Navula College students and serving police officers Police Constables Maikeli Sivo, Jolame Luvevou and Penioni Vuki.
The Crime Stoppers Scholastic Program was introduced in Fiji in 2005 whereby students are encouraged to work together with law enforcement and their respective Scholastic Board to create a safe and crime free learning environment.
