THE Fiji Police Force wants to see an election eventuate in 2014.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua made this comment at the Community Policing Symposium that began at the Fiji Police Academy in Suva yesterday.

Brig-Gen Naivalurua said all efforts of the force since 2009 and beyond was trying to grow Fiji and to make it a better place for everyone.

"Government's plan since 2009 has been very clear, that is, to grow Fiji in all aspects ... economically and also politically," he said.

He told divisional commanders, officers and manning staff of community police that it was everyone's duty to see that the right environment was created for the plan to be achieved.

And he said the key factor to achieving government's plans was a change in attitude of officers.

"It is all about attitude, you need new attitude, a change of attitude, the right attitude, positive attitude and collective attitude in order for changes to happen," Brig-Gen Naivalurua said.

He said concerted effort was needed to put a stop to criminal activities in Fiji.

Brig-Gen Naivalurua said achieving such targets was not easy.

"The fight to end crime is a hard fight; we want strong people on board and if you cannot take it, get out," he said.
