THE only way forward for us to address anti-social issues in our communities is through partnership or working together.
That was the message Operation Manger, Tulagi police, Inspector George Mouli echoed during the launching of Rove community by-law in Central Province on 30 July 2021.
“Today marks a history for Rove community to launch its community by-law,” Mouli stated.
“Your by-law is for the good and betterment of your community when it comes to law and order,” he added.
“Law and order in the community to prevent crime is the responsibilities of everyone.
“And I believe the only way forward for us to address anti-social issues in our community is through partnership or working together.
“Let us not work in isolation but let us work together to build a strong and consistent network to address issues in our community.
“I would try my best to provide you with policing support.
“Let us continue to work together to support each other to prevent crime and address crime related issues in our communities for a better community for the future of our children”
Chairperson of the Crime Prevention Committee (CPC) at Rove community Fr. Rev. James Riasi in his speech said the by-laws are not new kinds of rules or laws.
“Those are the once that already exist in our communities binding the church, customs and laws for the good of our communities,” Riasi said.
“I acknowledge the Royal Solomon Island Police Force for the partnership and working together with community leading to the successful launching of the by-law and that will enable us to learn the important concept of living with law,” he added.
Operations manager Mouli said community by-laws will relieve the people by protecting them from unlawful practices and illegal activities.
A good number of people in the community together with chiefs, Crime Prevention Committees (CPCs) and church elders witnessed the launching program.
