Lawmen focus on women

POLICEMEN who attended a week-long gender, violence against women and human rights training course conducted by the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre in Nadi said they better understand issues affecting women.

"This training was a good refresher from what we learnt at the police academy but it took my understanding to another level, especially the gender training on understanding what women go through," said course participant Varun Anand.

West Police Commander SSP Salacieli Naivilawasa said the 37 policemen and women should consider themselves fortunate for having completed the exercise.

"Police officers have been upskilled and trained on understanding gender, the legal aspects of gender issues particularly the Domestic Violence Decree and investigative skills," he said.
