Municipal police: Doing our job

MUNICIPAL police have been busy patrolling the new seafront parkland in Port Vila following the completion of the beautification project.

Speaking to the Independent Online, a municipal police officer who could not be named said they are walking around the park every day.

“To make sure the students especially don’t vandalise the new area because they are the ones doing it all the time.

“Not the students only but the public as well.”

The Municipal police officer said every time people go to the park, they have to be careful not to throw rubbish around.

They said there were many rubbish bins to use.

The seafront beautification project was officially launched 10 days ago by the Prime Minister, Charlot Salwai and the New Zealand High Commissioner, Georgina Roberts, as well as other dignitaries.
