Ready to serve country

A 34-YEAR-OLD police officer will join other officers on a peacekeeping mission in Liberia soon.

Corporal Daniel Naidu will depart Fiji this week to replace a fellow officer who returns to the country because of medical reasons.

While presenting his i-tatau to the head of the Fiji Police Force, the father of three said although it would be difficult for him to leave his family behind, he welcomed the challenge to represent his country overseas.

"This will be my first mission and while I will be making the trip alone without the usual contingent, I am looking forward to the challenge and vow to do my very best for the organisation and Fiji," Cpl Naidu said in a police report yesterday.

In farewelling the young officer, acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan said the work of a police officer was unpredictable and officers must be able to adapt to any situation they come across.

"By heeding the call of duty you've demonstrated the qualities of a police officer who is able to be deployed at any given time and I commend you on that.

"Unlike other mission deployments you will be travelling alone however, I am confident you will do well and settle in well with your fellow comrades."

He urged the young officer to work hard in maintaining Fiji's proud record of serving in overseas missions.

"I urge you to keep the proud reputation of Fiji."
