Police Chief Operations Officer ACP Livai Driu says a notable change has been seen towards supporting efforts in eradicating the illegal drug trade in recent weeks.

ACP Driu says in recent weeks there has been a positive change, as more people are providing tips on drug related activities.

ACP Driu says they receive calls, messages through various Fiji Police social media pages which have been referred for necessary action and some have led to seizures of both white and green drugs and arrests.

He has commended the sharing of information as it not only assists policing efforts but shows growing community support needed to effectively tackle the drug trade.

He also encourages the members of the public to use the Crime Stoppers line 919, send private messages via the Fiji Police Force Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page should they wish to share information on the illegal trade.

ACP Driu further says all tips and information shared will be kept confidential.
