In a statement, the Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said police was forecasting an increase in aggravated robberies and burglaries in November, based on part crime trends.

“Analysis conducted for the years 2014 to 2016 has shown a consistent increase in aggravated robberies recorded during November, hence the need for members of the public to adopt safety measures to avoid becoming victims of these crimes,” said Qiliho.

“The analysis for the months of September and October 2017 also showed an interesting trend whereby the majority of the aggravated robberies were committed by opportunists, contrary to popular belief of the involvement of organised groups operating throughout the four divisions.”

The Commissioner said opportunistic crimes were committed without prior planning.

The following areas are marked as a “red spot” because of increased aggravated robberies reported during the months of September and October:
