Anything is possible, officers told

SELECTED officers were presented with medals yesterday for their hard work, dedication, loyalty and years of service.

And those officers who have yet to receive a medal were told by Acting Commissioner Ravi Narayan not to be disheartened.

The medals were presented at the Nasova ground in Suva yesterday.

"Use today to motivate yourself so that one day you'll also be at the receiving end of such recognition," said Mr Narayan.

"With the combination of integrity, honesty, efficiency and honour, anything is possible and you will be rewarded just like those standing before you. These values are nothing new to us as they have always been the values and principles that guide us as police officers."

Mr Narayan thanked all officers for their hard work last year, which resulted in the force achieving all of its eight key performance indicators in the fourth quarter.

"What we've achieved is indicative of the dedication you have towards your calling as a police officer.

"I would also like to acknowledge the unwavering support of your families and loved ones because without them, you and I won't be able to conduct our work dutifully on a daily basis."

Mr Narayan also urged the officers with children starting school soon to ensure their children's educational needs are catered for.
