POLICE in the Western Division recorded the lowest percentage in complaints against officers and service delivery.

Officiating at the second quarterly police parade at Natabua High School grounds in Lautoka yesterday, Police Commissioner Ben Groenewald called for an overall improvement in their professional conduct and service delivery.

"You have managed to record a decrease in overall offences by 14 per cent, which is low when compared to other divisions," he said.

He urged the 400 officers on parade to put in the hard yards in reducing serious offences, crime against women and children.

"The Western Division is the central tourism district of Fiji and also accommodates several critical national infrastructures, being the drivers of the aviation, energy and agriculture sectors of Fiji's economy.

"You must have a good understanding of the economic activities in the division.

"It is absolutely critical, therefore, for you to be vigilant in ensuring a safe environment for the Western Division economy."

He urged them to improve their status in the next quarter and said he would closely monitor their performances through their divisional commanders.

"I expect an overall improvement in all your KPIs in the coming quarter."
