Manuals to assist officers

A TOTAL of 4500 Fiji Police manuals are expected to be distributed to police personnel around the country in the coming days to assist in their operation in next month's general election.

The manual which was launched yesterday was funded by the British High Commission.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Senior Superintendent Rusiate Tudravu said they would have an overview awareness in all the divisions on the use of the manual.

"Since we do not have enough time to do a two-three days training, we will just have overview awareness just to run through the manual via divisional training officers then we will issue the manual," ACP Tudravu said.

"The manual is very straight forward and easy to understand.

"It contains information on the police role and what is required of them and what a police officer requires at a polling venue and what needs to be done.

"It is very simple to understand and states the police role."

Acting British High Commissioner Daniel Salter said the commission was pleased to support the Fiji Police Force in their preparations for the election by funding the printing of the manual and distribution to more than 4000 police officers around the country who would be involved in providing security for the people of Fiji at the election.

The launch was held at the Nabua Police headquarters in Suva yesterday.
