Police Commissioner says the Fiji Police Force will recruit 602 more Police officers in this financial year.

Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho made the remark after residents of Sawani raised their concerns about the availability of Police officers and vehicles at Community Police Posts.

He said additional resources was the second phase of their plan as they would need to carry out the recruitment of 602 new officers first in this financial year.

He also said a new five-year structure in the Force to have four Police officers managing a Community Police Post during a shift was approved by the Government.

“With the new recruits, the issue of lack of drivers will be addressed as they will need to have a driver’s licence.”

He also said the Police had enough vehicles to run their operation however it was unfortunate that they do not have enough drivers.

“Some officers are going through the training process to become drivers and they have also included driving licences as part of the recruitment process into the Fiji Police Force,” Brigadier-General Qiliho said.
