Commitment to reduce road fatalities

Monday, July 28, 2014

THE Fiji Police is committed in seeing that its officers are well versed with road rules in its bid to reduce road fatalities in creating safer road environment for every Fijian.

A Dragger Operators Course began this morning at the Fiji Police Academy where police officers who are participants of the one-week workshop were reminded by the Commissioner of Police, Ben Groenewald, that they had the noble task of saving lives on the road.

The course would mean the participants trained in attaining proficiency in the use of breathalyser equipment.

Training is fundamental to enhance the knowledge and capability of our officers, which needs to be vigorously pursued at all levels of the organisation. This is why my focus has been on training, Mr Groenewald said.
