THE Fiji Police Force's Community Policing Symposium starts in Suva today.

Police are expecting about 150 participants, including police and community policing officers from around the country, to participate in the symposium.

The two-day symposium with the theme "Advancing Community through Economic Growth" will be held at the Fiji Police Academy in Nasova.

The event's chief guest is the Minister of Defence, National Security and Immigration, Joketani Cokanasiga.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the symposium was aimed at strengthening and highlighting the partnership between the police force and members of the community.

The police force hopes to use this partnership to work towards preventing crime around the country.

"It is also to launch Fiji's new community policing model," said Insp Sokomuri.

A delegation from Indonesia is also expected to be part of the symposium today.

Registration for the symposium commenced at the police academy yesterday afternoon, which saw several participants turning up to register themselves.
