Four long service police officers were farewell by the Lautoka Police Station staff on Saturday night.

The four retired police officers are Sergeant Qio Vodowaqavuka, Sergeant Abas Hussain, Sergeant Sindhu Raj and Corporal Epeli Naucukidi.

Lautoka Police Station Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Apete Rokolui thanked the four officers for their service to the Fiji Police Force and to the entire nation.

“These four officers have been serving for more than 30 years in the Fiji Police Force,” ASP Rokolui said.

“They were very dedicated, hardworking and very disciplined police officers and had always carried out their jobs according to the expectation of the Fiji Police Force.

“I wish them all the very best for their future.”

Retired Sergeant Sindhu Raj said his dream was fulfilled when he joined the force.

“I had always wanted to become a police officer and my dream came true in 1982 when I joined Fiji Police Force,” Sergeant Raj said.

“It was indeed an honour to serve the people of my country as a police officer. After retirement, I have plans to spend time with my family members.”

Mr Raj has advised the young Police officers and those who want to become a Police officer that they should always be honest towards their job.

“You must follow your ethic and people who come to you for help, should go back satisfied. Your honesty and discipline will carry you a long way,” he said.

Mr Raj was born and raised in Vuda Back Road in Lautoka.

He currently resides with his family in Vuda Back Road.

Sergeant Hussain thanked each and every Police officer with whom he had worked with.

“I have served the Fiji Police Force since 1985,” he said.

“I am thankful to my family for always supporting because they are the reason I became a Police officer, they motivated me.”

Sergeant Hussain said his journey as a Police officer had been wonderful.
