EAST Honiara Outskirt Settlement Community Policing Law Association (EHOSCPLA) will launch their community by-laws soon.
President of the EHOSCPLA Michael Kwaioloa confirmed that the draft copy of the by-laws is now with responsible authorities to screen it for purposes of inconsistency with the existing national laws before implementation.
He said that community by-laws are mainly to deal with illegal activities happening in the communities.
Mr Kwaioloa said they are serious to tackle the community issues at the moment.
“I know that most of the community people don’t want criminal activities within their community settings so here is the answer to that,” he said.
“I believe that as long as these by-laws come into reality, it will deal with anti-social behaviors of the community,” Mr Kwaioloa said.
He said that plans for the official launching will be set after the responsible authorities give their blessing of approval of the draft by laws.
Mr Kwaioloa said it is their dream to launch those by-laws this year.
There are 52 chiefs in East Honiara who will be carrying out implementation of the requirements of the by-laws after it is officially launched.
Mr Kwaioloa said while waiting for that, chiefs will continue to work with the police to stop criminal activities in the communities within east Honiara.
