POLICE officers need to be more visible as the people of Fiji depend on them to keep their roads safe.
This was the message stressed to 50 traffic officers from around the country at the opening of the first ever breathalyser operator's conference yesterday morning.
Chief guest and Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua while opening the conference said implementing positive changes should be aligned to the needs of the people.
He told police officers that he wanted to see positive outcomes after the two-day meeting because they were required twenty-four-seven on the job to keep the people of Fiji safe while travelling on the roads.
"Change is about improving things progressing, moving and setting targets outlined by the commissioner and what government wants to achieve in the Decade of Action on Road Safety which clearly states what is needed from 2011 to 2020".
"This is why we are here this morning and we have a huge challenge ahead of us to make sure that the people of Fiji feel safe on our roads", said the commissioner.
He also highlighted his recent visit to the Western Division where he did not see any traffic officers or vehicles manning the roads.
