THE Fiji Police Force yesterday farewelled three officers who are travelling to South Sudan on official peace-keeping duty.

Police inspectors Shobna Sharma and Loata Baleinavere and Corporal Sunil Dutt were farewelled at the police headquarters at Centrepoint in Nasinu.

Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho said once they put on the blue beret, they were considered as global ambassadors of the United Nations.

"Every individual that's worked with the UN will know once you put on that blue beret, you are a global ambassador of UN," Brig-Gen Qiliho said.

Insp Sharma said this peace-keeping mission would not only provide an income for her family, but also enable her to learn from international counterparts.

"It not only brings in monetary gain, but will help develop us as we will be working with officers from other parts of the world," Ms Sharma said.

The officer will depart for South Sudan on Sunday.
