FIJI'S work in unifying the Melanesian countries' police forces has been welcomed by the Solomon Islands Police Commissioner, Peter Aoranisaka.

The Solomon Islands is in need of such leadership, says Mr Aoranisaka, because of the high level of human and drug trafficking the region is vulnerable to.

"Solomon Islands is very supportive of the initiatives of the MSG under Fiji's leadership in information-sharing through the PCU and Regional Police Academy" Mr Aoranisaka said.

"We are in need of such co-operation and are thankful that Fiji provides that and through these initiatives we will be able to curb transitional crimes at our borders.

"We can certainly learn a lot from Fiji and this is evident from its highly-successful community policy framework."

Commissioner Aoranisaka was in Nadi attending the 4th MSG Police Commissioners' Conference.
