Police in control

ALL aspects of security were considered before the Fiji police drew up their action plan for the general election on September 17.

Chief Operations Officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu said 3200 police officers would be part of the election team but that did not mean that normal policing duties had been forgotten.

"All the police stations will be open and so will the community police posts and they will be manned during the day of election," ACP Tudravu said.

"We have approached the election in two folds, one is the manning of our police stations and two is the election task force. That is all part of our planning.

"We are covering that well and we also have personnel on stand-by."

Police have requested $1.3million for election day which the Cabinet has approved.

As for the police officers, ACP Tudravu said a directive had been given.

"We are all voting on postal ballot.

"Those that are left behind, we have made arrangements with the Supervisor of Elections for them to be given the opportunity to vote.

"The directive that was given to them was to come into the postal ballot so that we can concentrate on election duty."
