Recognition for officers

Litia Vulaidausiga

FORTY-ONE police officers from the Western Division who left behind their families to serve overseas were recognised for their sacrifices during the second quarterly parade for the division in Lautoka on Friday.

Loved ones and friends proudly watched as the batch received medals of recognition from the Police Commissioner Mr Ben Groenewald at the Natabua High School grounds.

Among the lot was Anjaleen Narayan from the Namaka Police Station, who was deployed for a year to Liberia in February, 2012, as part of the UN peacekeeping contingent there.

"I would encourage other women to join this field — it is very challenging but a great experience," she said.

Excited for her award, she said she remained grateful for the opportunity to work with other law enforcers from around the world, and was among three women officers in a batch of 18 in her mission.

Aside from Liberia, deployment missions included Kosovo, Iraq, Sinai, Darfur and the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI).

Mr Groenewald acknowledged the support rendered by families of the officers on parade, stressing that without them the police force would not be able to conduct its work diligently on a daily basis.
