POLICE chaplain ASP Isireli Kacimaiwai has urged police in the North to treasure their marriages.

At a briefing in Labasa early this week, ASP Kacimaiwai said it was important for police officers to maintain their marriages for the sake of their children.

"When your marriage works, your children will look up to you and this will have a very positive impact on them," he said.

"They will tell themselves that mom and dad are holding hands in ensuring their marriage will last.

"Love your spouses and treasure your families because this is your responsibility," he said.

ASP Kacimaiwai said God was "watching us and he knew our every move".

"If we do good things, God will reward us accordingly, and if we do bad things, we will reap the rewards.

"It's also important that we put our trust and faith in God so he can lead us every day.

"Our soldiers survive wars and when questions are asked about their survival, I usually say that it's the power of prayer."
