It was a proud moment for Constable Viliame Rokogu when he was given a motorbike to assist him in patrol­ling and crime investigations.

The 41-year-old Constable, from Wailevu, Cakaudrove, is based at the Levuka Police Station said it was a great achievement for his station to be handed a motorbike as they only had one vehicle for investigations and patrols in Levuka.

The father of six was among the 130 Police officers who were handed a Yamaha Motorbike each to assist them in their mobility.

He said he was proud of his achievements and was thankful to the Po­lice force for considering he was capable to drive a motorbike.

Constable Rokogu said the first time experience was scary, but the train­ing was informative and helped him learn a lot about the motorbike to ensure the usage was proper and the bike was properly maintained.

“I am proud of myself and the achievement I have earned with over 20 years of service in the force,” Constable Rokogu said.

“This is the first time for me to ride a motorbike.

“The motorbike will assist me to attend to calls and reports to inves­tigate while the vehicle is out on patrol.

“We will not have to wait for the ve­hicle as this will cater for our travel­ling.

“The members of the public expect a quick response from us and the motorbike will assist us in travel­ling quicker and easier too,” Con­stable Rokogu said.
