THE Fiji Police Force and Kiribati Police entered into an agreement yesterday which will allow the smaller island force to train in Fiji.

According to Commissioner of Police Ben Groenewald, the memorandum of agreement covered nine sectors, including security as a specific sector.

"This is acknowledgement of the fact that the Fiji police remains as the potential hub for police training in the region, given its history and available infrastructure to offer training to smaller island countries," said Mr Groenewald.

"I am pleased to note that the signing of this MOA between the Kiribati police and Fiji police will further strengthen our bilateral co-operation."

Kiribati Police Commissioner Ioeru Tokantetaake said this was the first time they had entered into a formal agreement with another agency and was happy that it was the Fiji police.

He said Fiji police would be able to provide training to the Kiribati police because they were well-equipped and had the facilities.
