'Need to do more'

Repeka Nasiko
Saturday, January 18, 2014

RAIN failed to dampen the spirits of 330 police officers in the Western Division who stood in the heavy downpour during the fourth quarter parade for acting commissioner Ravi Narayan.

While pointing out some laxity in the service delivery of the West police, Mr Narayan warned the officers more work would need to be done to meet key performance indicators set out by the force.

"On the national level, we have achieved great results, however, your division needs to do more," said Mr Narayan.

"If you had recorded positive results in some of our critical KPIs, I have no doubt we would have had a more positive outcome."

Mr Narayan said the officers would continue to be monitored.

"Yes, there will be those who will continue to criticise and scrutinise our work on a daily basis, but that is part and parcel of our work and let's not be disheartened but continue to work hard.

"What we've revealed today is what's on paper but you and I know very well that does not depict the entire story of what's happening on the ground."

"That's why we have to work harder through our community policing initiative and gain the confidence of the public to work with us in this fight against crime.

"The acting commissioner also said 2014 would represent a new era of quality service by the police force.

"This simply means that in whatever unit of field you're serving in, carrying out your duties with the highest level of professionalism.

"Approach your duties with the right attitude so that you will make an impact and a lasting impression on those you serve."
