October 20, 2018 6:51 pm
The Fiji Police Force and the Nauru Police Force have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to enhance cooperation between the two institutions.
The signing will enhance further capacity building, strengthening people to people exchanges and training opportunities offered by Fiji.
Fiji’s Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho says the Fiji Police Force is always ready to lend a helping hand to smaller island nations.
Qiliho says Fiji will always remember fellow Pacific Island nations because we need to work together to tackle issues and crime as a region.
Nauru’s Commissioner of Police Corey Caleb says the signing is important in not only achieving what is needed to protect their people and country, but is also critical to fostering a knowledgeable, resilient and sustainable Pacific region.
He has also indicated their institutions desire to collaborate in further areas of interest such as transnational crimes, cyber-crime, peace keeping capabilities training with the Police Special Response Unit.
The signing formalizes the MoA for another 3 years.
Commissioner Caleb said Fiji’s assistance has also seen their institution grow – through the forming of their very own Nauru Police Brass Band.
