Trust is important

Finau Naigulevu Turaga,Nadi Airport
Saturday, March 03, 2018

The alleged police brutality and torture of youths in Tavua and Waikubukubu seems to be ongoing with no real solution.

I believe that the few rotten eggs causing these deplorable acts need discipline, counselling, and rehabilitation. I believe the security forces in Fiji are no longer as esteemed, trusted and as reputable as 20 years ago.

I believe the perceptions of people when currently discussing the security forces include arrogance, bullying, torture and long waits when responding to crime calls. To be trusted I believe the security forces need to be humble, adaptable, and constantly communicating in communities. I believe when they are trusted by the public, perhaps, more crimes will be solved with everyone helping out.
