Progress evident

THE Fiji Corrections Service in Natabua is making progress in leaps and bounds.

Firstly, it is evident through the development of infrastructure around its facility.

Secondly, it is immensely focusing on the health and wellbeing of its employees.

The corrections officers take part in physical activities regularly.

Last week, I witnessed them having a game of touch rugby in the mid-day scorching sun. To my astonishment, four female officers were part of the exercise.

Believe it or not, they were enjoying themselves. They have managed to create a friendly atmosphere.

Thirdly, they use inmates to assist in the construction work.

It is amazing to see that the officers are not only supervising the inmates, they are actually painting, digging and carrying materials with them.

This civil service department is living its name.

Hopefully, all these innovations progress towards reducing crime in Fiji.
