DIVISIONAL Police Commander Western Salacieli Naivilawasa called on his staff to work together as a team during a farewell event in Lautoka yesterday.
SSP Naivilawasa will leave the country tomorrow for a year-long peacekeeping mission in South Sudan while deputy DPC Jope Ralulu replaces him.
West police spokeswoman Naina Ragigia said SSP Naivilawasa urged his troops to rally behind their new successor and work hard to fulfil their key performances indicators (KPI).
She said the departure of SSP Naivilawasa would not affect the morale of the 904 police officers in the west.
Assistant Superintendent Simione Bale will act as deputy DPC until the return of SSP Naivilawasa.
