IN an effort to offer better services to members of the public, the Fiji Police Force signed three memorandums of agreement with various stakeholders yesterday.

The agreements were signed with Medical Services Pacific, Vodafone Fiji and the Lands Ministry.

The partnership with Medical Services Pacific aims at assisting them by providing improved service to members of the community who are victims of sexual offences.

Through this agreement the police will elevate the standard of service on how victims of sexual offences are treated through training provided by the MSP.

The second agreement with Vodafone Fiji will enable members of the public to call their nearest police station using Vodafone or Inkk mobile numbers.

Through this partnership, members of the public will be able to dial short codes and report any incident to the police in a timely and cost-effective manner.

While signing the agreement, Police Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua said communication was vital for the force and helped improve service delivery.

"Through the short codes the force will respond quickly and more efficiently," Brig-Gen Naivalurua said.

The force also signed a memorandum of agreement with the Lands Ministry.

The agreement will enable the ministry to assist with the provision of electronic maps during police operations.

Brig-Gen Naivalurua said the signing of the agreements would enable police to efficiently deal with issues that were of relevance to the three stakeholders.
