Bid to curb vehicle shortage

Luke Rawalai
Monday, January 20, 2014

POLICE officers willing to use their own vehicles to attend to reports are a sign of commitment and passion for their work.

Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan told the fourth quarter parade in Labasa yesterday the Fiji Police Force has had vehicle shortages, as per logistic records, for a long time.

Mr Narayan said if police officers were willing to use their own resources, then it was a good sign of their commitment to their work.

"Police officers running to the media to complain about the usage of their resources should refrain from doing so," he said.

"The media will not solve their issues, they should approach my office and we will reach a solution as per their requests.

"We are here to provide better services to the community and we will go out of our way to ensure that this is done."
