LEAVE for police officers will be put off from July until after the election, says police chief operations officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu.

Mr Tudravu said they were yet to confirm the number of officers to be on duty during the polls.

He said Police Commissioner Major General Bernadus Groenevald was briefed about the election plans.

"Our preparations are according to the time lines that we have set out.

"This is in conjunction with the preparation by the Supervisor of Election and his team," Mr Tudravu said.

"I can state that we have gone past our preliminary preparation and the second phase of just consolidating our resources and then the training of the personnel."

Mr Tudravu said election awareness for police would start next month. There are 96 days to go before election day.
