Police will be closely monitoring students travelling to Lautoka for the Fiji Secondary School Rugby Union Deans finals this weekend.

Chief operations officer Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Abdul Khan said a traffic management plan had been put together by the Fiji Police Force which would include escorting packages for participating teams.

“The recent attacks on students returning from the Fiji Secondary School Rugby Union Deans competition in the Western Division will not be condoned and operational plans are being put together to ensure the safety of students, parents and guardians and supporters,” Mr Khan said in a statement.

He called on parents, guardians and teachers to be mindful of their children’s behaviour and activities to and from the tournament venue and to be considerate of other members of the public.

“Operations will be boosted this weekend and reiterate the warning that unruly behaviour will not be condoned.”
