MIDDLE and high level police officers are expected to benefit from a memorandum of co-operation signed yesterday between the Fiji Police Force and the Public Service Commission.
Under the MOC, the PSC will provide police with facilities at the Government Training Centre in Nasese on need basis for appropriate training, and also include police in its leadership development training program.
The force will also freely share information and ideas to enhance ethics and values of the public service, as well as best practices in service delivery.
PSC permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said the MOC would better integrate the force into the PSC.
"It is one of the better ways of running the programs where we will be able to share various resources, including office space and training personnel, as well as the whole infrastructure pertaining to training," Mr Chand said.
"It is a very momentous occasion for us because we have always seen police as out there and PSC as out here but this allows us a more closer working relationship and sharing of information about all ambits of best practices in the public service in our joint efforts to improve service delivery."
Police Commissioner Ben Groenewald said training was an important part of development and the MOC would facilitate that.
