HISTORY was created within the Fiji Police Force following the inauguration of Assistant Senior Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi as the first female divisional police commander within the force.

A parade was observed for the changing of commands as outgoing divisional police commander north, Senior Superintendent of Police Seru Savou handed over the reins of leadership to Acting DPC North Assistant Superintendent of Police Fulori Rainibogi before taking up his new post as the director training at the Fiji Police Academy.

The ceremony was a touching one as the outgoing DPC handed over the Fiji Police Force flag to his successor followed by the signing of the contracts and handing over of the register.

Chief guest Assistant Commissioner of Police, Inspector General Isikeli Vuniwaqa said the parade was a mark of support for the visions and aspirations of the organisation.

ACP Vuniwaqa lauded the outgoing DPC for his contribution and effort while congratulating the incoming DPC for being the first female to hold the post within the police force.

"Rise up to the challenge and make your mark in a field that is mostly dominated by males," he said.

ACP Vuniwaqa encouraged officers at the parade to work together for the betterment of their division.

"The Commissioner of Police has a dream of establishing the Fiji Police Force as a police force for the nation by the year 2014 and we are depending on each one of you to prove yourselves worthy and able so that we achieve such an organisation," he said.
