While all hands are on deck by FCDA Security architecture to curb crimes and make our streets safe again, we urge road users to be vigilant as they go about their daily duties and to be careful not to keep solo at late night.
Information sharing is effective security. Crimes lurks in dark corners. Ignorance breeds insecurity.
Criminals exploit lack of knowledge, and survive through surprise attacks.
Criminals can not manipulate a people who is abreast with what the government is doing and what the criminals are plotting.
Therefore, it is in the best interest of the FCT CTDO to keep the public updated on government’s effort against criminal enterprise. And keep the public aware of the crime hot spots as criminals try to shift base due to the intensified efforts of the government to repel and dicipate criminals, and make our streets safer again.
