Women for police network

WOMEN inclusion in police networks was one of the issues brought to light during the fourth Melanesian Spearhead Group Police Commissioners Conference at the Tanoa International Hotel in Nadi yesterday.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said members of the MSG countries also discussed an update on the Regional Police Academy as well as progress on various police co-operation initiatives adopted since the last conference.

"An issue discussed at length was the strengthening of the current police women's network, taking into consideration the important role women play in law enforcement as well as all levels of society," she said.

Vanuatu Police Commissioner Arthur Edmanley said his organisation was trying to change the mind-set of confining women to households and for them to play a more inclusive role in law enforcement.
