AUKI police will launch an operation targeting anti-social behaviour this Christmas.
Provincial Police Commander Alfred Uiga said the operation will start today and continue on for the next two weeks.
Mr Uiga said the aim of the operation is to monitor anti-social behavior during the festive season and ensure everyone enjoys their celebrations.
He added this is a normal Christmas operation to ensure law and order are maintained.
“Christmas season is not time to drink and make troubles, but a time everyone should celebrate peacefully with families,” Mr Uiga said.
Meanwhile, he urged drivers to be careful and avoid alcohol while driving this Christmas.
Mr Uiga said records have it, that cases of road accidents normally increased during the festive season.
“I urged drivers to be careful and not to drive if they are drinking. This especially goes to drivers of trucks ferrying passengers up the north, south and east roads,” Mr Uiga said.
