ONE hundred and fifty new police recruits were yesterday reminded to put their heads in the right place, put everything else aside and concentrate on learning.

Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan, while welcoming the new recruits, said the life of a police officer was one dedicated to serving others.

"Your life from today onwards will be one of service," Mr Narayan said.

"Two important qualities a police officer must have is that of heart and passion.

"Your purpose here within the organisation and your ultimate goal is to serve and this should be inbuilt into your everyday thinking."

Mr Narayan said the everyday definition of a police officer was a person whose job was to enforce laws, investigate crimes, and make arrests.

However, he said in this modern day and age, when people wore the police uniform their roles and responsibilities were so much more.

"Being a police officer is challenging but let me assure you it is also very rewarding.

"When you carry out your duties accordingly with the organisation's best practices then expect positive results.

"You'll have a sense of accomplishment because you know justice has been served."

Mr Narayan told the recruits that being a police officer was an enjoyable and notable profession and he guaranteed them they would not regret the decision to be part of the Fiji Police Force.

He said the recruits would be going through months of intensified training.
