The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) is keen to finalise vital issues that will be of benefit to them as the 4th Melanesian Spearhead Group Police Commissioners’ Conference begins today in Nadi.
Solomon Islands Deputy Commissioner of Police, Walter Kola, said he was looking forward to the two- day conference. Arriving last Saturday, Mr Kola said they were looking forward to finalising some vital issues that would benefit not only the Solomon Islands but the region as a whole.
Issues expected to be discussed include the Formed Police Unit (FPU), the Regional Police Academy (RPA) and the Department of Peace Keeping Operations (DPKO) initiatives.
Mr Kola said he was eager to see the progress of the initiatives discussed in previous meetings to enable MSG countries to boost their ability to effectively respond to law and order situations in our region.
The construction of the Regional Police Academy in Nabukavesi, Namosi, is expected to be high on the agenda. The Indonesian Government, in January, donated $US500,000 (about $FJ929,195.5m) to the Fijian Government for its establishment.
Meanwhile, Vanuatu’s Police Commissioner Arthur C Edmanley and his delegation was the first to arrive in the country last Saturday morning while Papua New Guinea’s Police Commissioner arrived yesterday evening.
The PCC’s last annual meeting was in November 2012 in Papua New Guinea and this was followed by a special meeting in Vanuatu in May 2013.
