Liberia bound

Torika Tokalau
Wednesday, April 30, 2014

ACTING Commissioner of Police Ravi Narayan challenged his officers soon to leave for Liberia to abide by the two pillars of the police force.

In the beginning of the pre-deployment training at Nasova yesterday, Mr Narayan said discipline and communication was important.

"These two pillars can make any organisation fall. In everything that you do abide by these two pillars.

"Discipline in everything — your approach, dress and work with multi-disciplinary forces," he said.

"And always communicate your results and intentions with each other and your superiors."

He told the policemen to serve their country well and bring with them experience and knowledge they could impart to their younger colleagues.

"I do not want to see anyone come back. When you work, think of Fiji, our policies here and what you have learnt.

"Service to the community is important — whether you serve in Fiji or Liberia. Fully understand the mandate because that is the platform that will keep you safe. Go there and create a good impression of Fiji and our police force."

Five members of the police department will leave for Liberia in May and two more are expected to follow soon.
