The only way forward for us to address anti-social issues in our communities is through partnership or working together, a strong message echoed by Operation Manger, Tulagi police, Inspector George Mouli during a launching of Rove community by-law in Central Province on 30 July 2021.
Inspector Mouli said today marks a history for Rove community to launch its community by-law. Your by-law is for the good and betterment of your community when it comes to law and order.
Operation Manger Mouli said law and order in the community to prevent crime is the responsibilities of everyone, and I believe the only way forward for us to address anti-social issues in our community is through partnership or working together. Let us not work in isolation but let us work together to build a strong and consistent network to address issues in our community.
Mr. Mouli said I would try my best to provide you with policing support. Let us continue to work together to support each other to prevent crime and address crime related issues in our communities for a better community for the future of our children.
Chairperson of the Crime Prevention Committee (CPC) at Rove community Fr. Rev. James Riasi in his speech at the launching ceremony said I thank God for all desires known to him and no secret has hidden from him for the re-enforcement of his commandment through this by-law.
He said the by-laws are not new kinds of rules or laws. Those are the once that already exist in our communities binding the church, customs and laws for the good of our communities.
“I acknowledge the Royal Solomon Island Police Force for the partnership and working together with community leading to the successful launching of the by-law and that will enable us to learn the important concept of living with law. Community by will relieve us by protecting our people from unlawful practices and illegal activities,” said Operation Manger Mouli.
A good number of people in the community together with chiefs, Crime Prevention Committees (CPCs) and church elders came to witness the launching program.
