POLICE officers who served on peacekeeping missions were awarded medals for their service by Commissioner Ben Groenewald yesterday morning.

The 34 men and women had served more than a year in war torn nations.

Inspector Dharmendra Datt, who was in Liberia from November 2009 to November 2010, during the end of the civil war, said the training in Fiji and the bond between the police officers saw them through.

"I think what we do in training in Fiji and the sense of family that is present within the Fiji Police is what keeps motivating us,"Mr Datt said.

"The Liberians were more open towards us because of our friendly nature and I am grateful to the force because it has helped me to find direction in life.

"If given the chance to serve again whilst in the force, I would do it again."
