The Acting Commissioner says majority of their players are uniformed officers who are also frontline police officers.

Chew says these officers come under the authority of their Divisional Police Commanders who oversee operations on the ground in their respective policing divisions and formations.

According to Chew, while they want to continue with the previous arrangements of sports release or participation, they need to also look at the actual police role of service delivery to the people of Fiji.
