“The police have stepped up their operations and those include definitely check points in the south, as well as other parts of the country. There has been beefed up presence especially in the south by additional officers from different operational units. However the country-wide operations continue going through the nineteenth day celebration. And also this time we have been complemented by the police trainees who are currently in the Police Training Academy who are working alongside senior police officers as they do their on-the-job training during this holiday season.”
