Feel for the people, police told

By MERE NALEBA
Sunday, June 29, 2014

Update: 4:55PM POLICE officers have been reminded once again to learn to read situations better before trying to assist members of the public.

Chief Operations Officer ACP Rusiate Tudravu told officers in the Eastern Division last week that police officers needed to establish a relationship with members of the public in which people can come to them without fear.

 Looking from the perspective of the police, go deeper and try to have feeling of the people that are coming to report, this is one thing that is lacking in the organisation, ACP Tudravu said.

I would like to make it very clear, we the officers want to be main boys and we cannot sympathise with the people on the need or how they feel at that moment when they come to our office, and this is the kind of report we are receiving saying that people in the organisation do not know what to do.
