“We looking at all avenues which we can utilize the experiences and of course the knowledge and technology in the police forces as well and with this – the training for our people is very critical particularly in specialized areas. Not only on crime scenes but on the other aspects of its own. This is one of the key priorities now for the commissioner.”

Opposition Member, Pio Tikoduadua highlighted some of the issues involving police officers.

“In this very house, the Prime Minister called some rogue in the way they treated some reporters from overseas. In the papers, they talked about the lack of vehicles in Nakasi responding to a very specific case last week where someone died. And only recently we’re hearing the police – to the decree of intimidating LBGTQ people planning a match.”

Meanwhile, Seruiratu also reveals that the Police Force is far ahead of the Fiji Military Forces in terms of updating its policy and legal documents.
