Police response to improve

POLICE responses in attending to public complaints are expected to improve.

This follows the mass recruitment of 50 drivers for the first time by the Fiji Police Force.

The month-long recruitment drive was launched by the force's Strategic Planning, Policy, Research and Development Unit head ACP Henry Brown in Nasova yesterday.

ACP Brown reminded them to be examples to the public and the police officers and improve on their services, in light of previous incidents of delays in attending to reports and complaints.

"This will improve our response time and our mobility big time," ACP Brown said.

"This is a first time to have such a large number of recruit drives for police drivers only.

"Once they pass out they will be based in the three major police stations around the country and divisions then the divisional police commanders will recommend which divisions require more."

ACP Brown said if this was successful on the ground they look forward to having similar recruitment drives

"The lives of police officers are in their hands and they look after the vehicles, they improve the response time, improve mobility."

The 50 drivers' month-long training is aimed at making service delivery more efficient in Nasova, Suva.

ACP Brown added the course would improve the force's mobility in handling crimes.
