CONDUCTING training for officers will be the main focus of the Fiji Police Force during this last quarter.
Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan revealed this to his subordinates during the third quarter northern parade in Labasa yesterday morning.
"Divisional training awareness workshops based on the core activities of the men on the ground is an area that we are looking at," Mr Narayan said.
"Our focus will be on leadership, our people, systems and community partnership. We hope to do that well in this final quarter.
"However, there will be other competing issues from our national responsibilities to our regional and international commitments on peacekeeping.
"For the Duavata community policing model, we have decided at headquarters to slow down its launch and when we know we have truly won the support of the people, we will start again."
Mr Narayan told them they could not be saying one thing and be doing something else.
"When you do something that's not up to the expectation of the people we serve, you are unfortunately reflecting the Fiji Police Force as an organisation and that is unacceptable and this applies when you are on duty or off duty.
"Remember there's never an off-duty officer. As long as people know that you are an officer, they will expect you to act in a manner expected of an officer."
Mr Narayan also thanked the families of policemen and women for their support towards the operation of the force.
