FAMILY members of the 27 police officers on peacekeeping duties in Liberia were given assursnce by assistant Commissioner of Police Henry Brown that they weree safe and in good health.

Mr Brown gave the reassurance following an international travel advisory issued to West African countries experiencing outbreaks of Ebola Virus Disease.

The World Health Organization has placed Liberia, Leone, Sierra and Nigeria under its International Health Emergency list.

In a statement, Mr Brown said the officers serving a one-year term in Liberia were in good health.

He said the Fijian contingent commander was in regular contact with officers at police headquarters, adding that the latest update from Liberia confirmed they were doing well.

He said if the peacekeepers were at risk of contracting the virus, the United Nations would be notified who would then notify the Fiji Police Force.
