Inspector Mark Mosinakave said there is enough manpower to respond to crime alerts in the city.
He highlighted that only selected police personnel are currently on duty at the three counting venues in NCD.
Inspector Mosinakave said criminals and opportunists should not take advantage of the counting underway as police officers are always on alert.
This follows a robbery yesterday at a Stop N Shop Supermarket located at Rainbow, where a suspect was apprehended by police after robbing the supermarket.
Police in Gerehu caught the suspect along the Baruni road after the incident at around midday.
Inspector Mosinakave urged the public to let peace prevail in the city while counting is underway.
“We have already voted so let the counting take place.
“The public should get on with their daily lives and let peace prevail throughout the counting period while waiting for results to be announced.
“But at the same time, always be cautious of your surrounding because unexpected things can happen anytime,” Inspector Mosinakave advised.
