FOR the first time, the Fiji Police Force managed to achieve all of its eight key performance indicators in the fourth quarter of last year.

On Tuesday, the police force briefed Defence Minister Joketani Cokanasiga on its achievements in the fourth quarter.

Acting Commissioner Ravi Narayan said in the reduction of complaints and disciplinary offences by 50 per cent, the police force managed to record a reduction of 58 per cent.

However, he told police officers at the fourth quarter parade in Suva yesterday morning they could improve this.

"In the reduction of crime by 10 per cent, another gallant effort as there was a reduction of 23 per cent. Reduction in serious crime by 10 per cent, we recorded a reduction of 17 per cent," he said.

"The reduction for crime against women has been a contentious issue for us and I am happy to report we managed to meet the 10 per cent target and record a major reduction of 88 per cent.

"From the 2115 cases reported for the fourth quarter 2012 period, we reduced this to 1903 for the 2013 period."

Mr Narayan said another important KPI the force managed to record a reduction in was that of crime against children, where an 82 per cent reduction was recorded compared with the 10 per cent target.

"On our detection rate by 70 per cent, we finally met this target and recorded a 70 per cent rate. Of the 4406 criminal reports received, we managed to detect a total of 3095 cases and for that we say thank you for the hard work.

"In the reduction of road fatalities by 30 per cent, we recorded a reduction of 31 per cent.

"And the chief administration officer and his corporate team have once again managed to maintain our books within budgetary allocation."

Mr Narayan said the force's achievements in the fourth quarter were commendable considering the challenges of resources they encountered.
