THE proposed regional police academy project is closer to being realised, says Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan.

"We have made significant progress during this meeting and one of the outcomes now is that we will go into the funding aspect of the project," he said at the closing of the two-day meeting in Nadi on Tuesday.

Mr Narayan, who was co-chair of the meeting, said the project would involve a considerable amount of funding and an announcement of the details would be made in the coming months.

"I cannot put an exact value to it right now but it will be a very substantial amount."

The MSG police meetings are considered important as issues of strengthening initiatives important for the policing of the region are discussed.

High on this year's agenda were training initiatives, sharing of resources, a regional police academy and the establishment of an MSG women's network.
