Lusaka Commissioner of Police Nelson Phiri says police in the area will not rest until law and order is attained in the capital.
Speaking to ZANIS in a telephone interview, today, Mr. Phiri said the police will make sure that there is sanity in the capital especially among the youths in view of the mushrooming street parties in the city.
“Law enforcement is a continuous processes so wherever we know that there is some sought of indiscipline and law breaking we come in as the police to enforce law and order”, said Phiri.
Mr. Phiri has urged communities to cooperate with the police in curbing any wrong doings to ensure maintained peace and security.
“It is impossible for the police to be in all the areas but we depend on members of the public to call us when they see something wrong going on so that we step in and help reduce on wrong things .
“We also advise parents to make sure they monitor and mentor their children to avoid the children being found in wrong place at a wrong time,” added Mr. Phiri.
He said as much as the Police had a department which dealt in sensitising and counselling youth on wrong doings the police will not hesitate to take action to on those would be offenders.
Street parties, common in the western world, have become a regular trend held either on the streets or at drinking premises in the capital and involve young people.
