Police donate to Newly established Fatumu community wardens

Tongan police handed over more than TP$500 worth of donated equipment to assist Fatumu’s community wardens on July 24.

The equipment included three bicycles, four torches and six vests.

Police will also conduct training programs to assist the wardens who are joining the community service as volunteers. .

There are already 35 community warden services in Tongatapu villages to respond to the community safety and anti-social behaviour needs of residents.

The equipment will help make it easier for the warden team in working to deter crime and help residents to feel safer, according to Emaloni Tongi, the Head of the Community Police.


Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
