NFP's plans for new look police force

THE National Federation Party says it will implement its own policy for a new look police force if it forms the next government.

NFP leader Biman Prasad claimed the police force, which had recently been dogged by public complaints and allegations of brutality, had somewhat lost its credibility and reputation.

"We believe the police force, in the last several years, has lost the reputation and credibility in some ways and this is due to the deliberate lack of attention in providing them with the appropriate salaries and resources such as vehicles," he said at Mulomulo in Nadi.

"The security of our people and everyday law and order should be the job of the police force and we will put in strict processes and procedures and checks and balances so that policemen and women, in their duties, conduct themselves in an ethical and proper manner and do not subject those who commit crime to brutality because that is against the human rights of all the people in this country."

Recent days have seen political parties join the public chorus of condemnation against the police for the death of a robbery suspect in hospital a few days after his arrest.
