The main purpose of the campaign is to help reduce crime and the number of criminals starting from within the family and involving all levels of the community in crime prevention efforts, Mahiza said.

"This programme also aims at bringing together each family in identifying characteristics of violations of peace, skills and solutions of problems facing each locality, to emphasise the importance of community welfare," she said, urging all Coast residents to support the police in their work.

Mahiza also announced that the inspector general has provided regional police with 25 motorcycles, valued at 40 million shillings ($25,000).
