News : Helpline Successful
Suva, Fiji, Nov 20, 2015 -- The Crime Stoppers helpline continues to receive calls that have led to the successful location of missing persons and fighting against criminal activities.
Yesterday 20-year-old Salanieta Marama of Nausori was located safely following a tip-off received on the Crime Stoppers helpline. She has since been reunited with her family.
Meanwhile, through another tip-off a team of officers uprooted plants believed to be marijuana ranging up to 60cm in Navutu, Lautoka, yesterday afternoon.
At present the identity of the person who cultivated the plants is unknown and Police are requesting anyone with relevant information to contact 919.
It is indeed encouraging for the Fiji Police Force to note that more people are using the helpline to assist in the detection of criminal activities.
Police have confirmed that all calls will be treated with the highest level of confidentiality. Police are optimistic that with the setting up of the dedicated call centres operating on a 24-hour basis more people will help them stop criminal activities within their communities.
