Better security

POLICE services in countering cyberterrorism and enhancing border security in the country are expected to improve soon.

This followed the return of Acting Police Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan from the INTERPOL Global Security & Counter Terrorism Summit 2014 in Sydney, Australia.

Mr Narayan led the Fiji delegation to the high level collaboration meeting which was attended by about 200 delegates from 60 countries.

A police statement said the summit provided a forum for national police chiefs, heads of national counter terrorism and international experts to identify emerging issues in the counter terrorism environment and to identify opportunities for co-operation and engagement.

The convention organised by INTERPOL in close partnership with the Canada Government and the Australian Federal Police was convened with the aim at fostering awareness and understanding of INTERPOL tools and services.

The convention also focused on INTERPOL's integrated Border Management Taskforce and its initiatives to support counter terrorism investigations through enhanced border security and a study of current terrorism trends including transnational fighters and cyber-terrorism.

The conference which ended yesterday aimed to strengthen and further develop existing regional and international networks.

The statement added that the invitation extended to the Fiji Police was testament of the critical role Fiji played in regional policing.

Fiji's attendance has further strengthened policing ties with its neighbours in the region.
