More than one hundred police officers are undergoing a week long training session.
This is to equip themselves with the knowledge of identifying future threats.
A team of officers from the Indonesia National Police are in the country to train officers on Cybercrime, Public Order Management, and Traffic Police Training Assessment.
Police Commissioner, Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho says noting the way criminal minds operate, they are sure to find ways around laws and legislations.
He says it is crucial that officers are upskilled and equipped.
“Police Forces all over the world are facing new challenges and at times it can be overwhelming. Our growing relations means increased networking and training in specific areas of co-operation – and it has enabled us to cushion the impacts of these challenges as a result of the people to people exchange programs our Fijian police officers have benefitted from.”
Brigadier General Qiliho adds the training is a golden opportunity because sending a large contingent of officers overseas at one time will be difficult and costly.
