The Fiji Police Force yesterday welcomed back its contingent who accompanied Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama to the Solomon Islands a week ago.
The contingent was part of the Fijian Government delegation to the Solomon Islands’ independence celebration.
They were doing community policing outreach programmes on the island.
While they were earmarked to conduct one session, the contingent asked their counterparts to hold more sessions in partnership with the Republic of Fiji Military Forces.
Standing before their Commissioner, Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua, they were congratulated for staging a successful mission that left a lasting impression with their counterparts and the Solomon Islands community at large.
“You have proven that the Fiji Police Force is a professional organisation through our commitment to not only serve and look after our home but extend our services to the regional and international front,” Brigadier-General Naivalurua said.
“The mission in the Solomon Islands has finished and now your next mission, whether you’re a corporal or sergeant in whichever division you’re from, is to give back to your station, post or division.”
The team, led by Assistant Commissioner of Police Biu Matavou, held 10 three-hour community policing outreach programmes on the island in a week.
