Enforcement Officers are learning how to investigate, collect evidence and possibly prosecute breaches of environment protection laws.

Trainers from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions over the next two days will teach officers about what goes into building a case against individuals or businesses who don’t follow the relevant laws.

The Department of Environment is responsible for the protection of Fiji’s natural resources including endangered species, waste management and pollution control, control of substances that deplete the ozone layer through implementation of Fiji’s environmental policies, programs, and enforcement of environmental laws.
