THE Fiji Police Force wants to learn from the Indonesian National Police.

This was highlighted by police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri during the Community Policing Symposium at the Police Academy in Nasova yesterday.

A team of senior police officials from Indonesia were invited to speak and share their experiences by Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua at the symposium.

The team from Indonesia shared how they worked and conducted duties in communities and deployed police officers to integrate with the people.

Insp Sokomuri said it was vital that the force took into consideration views of defence forces of other countries.

"The Fiji Police Force can learn from Indonesia and implement the strategies for countering criminal elements here," he said.

Insp Sokomuri said Indonesian police had been successful in the area of community policing and Fiji could learn a lot from them.

He said it was also important that police officers in Fiji developed their knowledge to fight crime.
