ACTING Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan believes the people of Fiji have yet to see the best performance of police officers.

Mr Narayan told his officers that the force recorded an impressive fourth quarter and yearly performance in 201.

"Let's not be caught up in our achievements but rather focus on where we can improve," Mr Narayan said.

"We are an organisation that can't afford to be basking in our achievements for a long period of time due to the nature of our work which is very demanding.

"During the last quarter, we have re-focused our attention and strategies on improving operational effectiveness.

"From the command level, we have pushed forward resources and logistics to assist you conduct your duties on the ground.

"This continues to be our focus and we would like to assure you that we will do all we can to ensure those of you fighting the frontline battle are well-trained and equipped."

Mr Narayan said with the right support, the police force would be able to achieve a lot more.

He also said there would be those who would continue to criticise and scrutinise the work of police officers on a daily basis.

But, he said, it was part and parcel of police work and he urged the police officers not to be disheartened but continue to work hard.

Mr Narayan told the officers they would have to work harder through their community policing initiatives and gain the confidence of the public to work with them in the fight against crime.
