A TOTAL of 18 enthusiastic new cadet officers joined the Fiji Police Academy's commissioner's cadet program yesterday after formally being welcomed by Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan.
Mr Narayan told the new officers that as law protectors, it was their duty to do everything in their power to work with communities within the country to reduce crime and protect the people.
"We should improve on our service delivery. I no longer expect just any kind of service, but only quality service to the community," Mr Narayan told the officers yesterday.
"This training will ensure that when you graduate after completion of this course, you are able to provide the service that the Fiji Police Force endeavours to provide to the community."
Mr Narayan said there were many areas the force hoped to improve on, and that community policing was a major part of that process.
