Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua admits there are still many barriers in the Fiji Police Force to achieving their operational objectives.
He made these comments this week at a Labasa workshop aimed at building relationships between couples in the Fiji Police Force.
“We are going through very difficult times in the Fiji Police Force, challenging in the sense that we are trying to improve the organisation. We are trying to improve, and move forward but we cannot do at this point in time unless we break barriers,” Brigadier-General Naivalurua said.
However, he remained optimistic that these barriers could be overcome.
“Barriers that I have identified, we are trying to break them and rectify right now. There are other hidden barriers, and this will take some time before these barriers surface.
“If you can remember during my first speech as a Commissioner of Police in 2010, I clearly stated my intention. And that was to improve the Fiji Police Force.”.
The Commissioner emphasised the importance of building lasting families.
“This is why we are here today. For the sake of the organisation this workshop is envisaged to assist in building a good, honest and trusted organisation. The family aspect is an integral part of our organisation and I believe that once that foundation is solid, then the organisation will be solid and we should be able to have a Force that has good, honest and trusted officers.”
