ESTABLISHING a Melanesian Spearhead Group police women's network is one of the outcomes of the 4th MSG Police Commissioners' meeting which ended in Nadi on Tuesday.

Fiji has already made inroads in this area with requests from the UN to send more female officers to serve on overseas missions.

"The MSG police women's network is an initiative to supplement the existing women's network within the Pacific region and also address concerns of policewomen in light of their increasing role in policing activities," Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan said.

"The meeting has therefore endorsed the secretariat to pursue programs aimed at empowering women officers."

Permanent secretary for Defence, National Security and Immigration Osea Cawaru said this was the framework all must strive to achieve in the region.
