THE new traffic control centre can help increase the State's coffers.
Military Land Force commander Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga while opening the National Traffic Control Centre said it would help save lives and increase the government's revenue by making more bookings on the roads.
Police director traffic Senior Superintendent Mahesh Mishra later said the police force was not an organisation for revenue earning.
"We are here for service delivery and how best we can provide quality service to our communities," SSP Mishra said.
Col. Tikoitoga said he was humbled to launch the centre, which was a milestone for police.
"On behalf of government, we are very grateful to the initiative taken today to launch the national traffic control centre," he said.
Col. Tikoitoga said the control centre was a place where stakeholders could come together to share information and be responsible for the policies and resources given by government.
"I thank the stakeholders for coming and showing significance in the move forward in this vision by the commissioner of police and his senior officers that will promote and save lives," he said.
