Urban theft epidemic

DEAR EDITOR,

As a concerned Solomon Islands resident and student, I would like to publicly point my views known about the street boys in front of the Central Market bus stop location.

I urge the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) to intervene effectively and drive those offenders out of the area from further causing frustrated disturbance to the general public.

The Central market bus stop has become a hotspot for these street dwellers to do unlawful criminal activity such as stealing and consuming of illegal alcohol in public areas.

Thus, causing disturbance to local entrepreneurs and has becoming an unsafe zone especially for elderly people, women and young children.

Almost every week victimized citizens complaining about their properties including huge amount of cash got stolen without their concern in this particular area.

My opinion suggest that by implementing such duty, the spot will become safer for the general public. People will have freedom to move around and feel safe from crime, leading to better overall mental health and wellbeing.

Thus, will strengthen trust between local authorities and the general public as well as reduce crime rate.

Therefore, I call onto the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) be held accountable and take immediate and appropriate action on this serious matters.

To serve as a deterrence, I recommend the responsible department to increase law enforcement patrols and enhance penalties for repeat violators.

Imagine a safer and peaceful town would that be?

Without these common pickpockets.
