Police vehicle mishaps

THE Fiji Police Force has recorded 20 accidents involving police vehicles.

Acting Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan said the rising number of accidents involving police officers was of great concern to the department.

"I am concerned at the number of complaints against police and the number of police vehicle accidents," he said.

"As far as the first quarter is concerned, we have 20 police vehicle accidents and 246 complaints against police and 97 complaints against services registered."

Mr Narayan said the police force would not tolerate such behaviour from officers.

"You have noted that in the past few weeks, some police officers have been subjected to investigations on various issues and some have been charged for neglect and conduct."

He said the police force had to put a stop to these complaints.

"Your prompt service, regular feedback and quick actions will assist us in doing that.

"We have no funds to spend in the investigations of cases in respect to complaints against service and complaints against police."
