The deputy director of the Australian Pacific Security College, Robert Styles says discussions on cooperation are crucial to effective policing.
Styles was speaking to FBC News as the facilitator of the National Security Strategy Workshop.
Styles says learning to collaborate is the most important challenge that needs to be tackled.
“If I was to name the desired outcome it would be increased level of collaboration and the preservation of what is best practice and the reinforcement of that”
Meanwhile, Defence Minister Inia Seuiratu says they are also collaborating with the University of the South Pacific, Fiji National University and the University of Fiji to train personnel for border security in the future.
“The challenge is always there and we keep emphasizing that it’s not only about the police and the government agencies, it’s not only about the whole of government approach but it’s a whole of nation approach”
The two-day workshop which ends today includes personnel from border security agencies.
