Public challenged

The public has been encouraged to help police.

The NCD metropolitan superintendent, Commander Perou N’Dranou, challenged people gathered to watch yesterday’s Boroko police station parade to be mindful of how they deal with issues on the street.

He said the community must also play their part, especially in cases where they can step up and prevent crime, like petty theft and bag snatching.

He urged them to make a difference.

N’Dranou says the onus is on everyone to create a safe environment conducive for all.

It is only through a community effort that change can take place on the streets.
