The Police in the North have not done well in terms of their targeted percentage decrease in complaints against Police and complaints against their service.
This was highlighted by Commissioner of Police Bernadus Groenewald during the Second Quarter Parade held at the Labasa Police station ground on Friday.
The Commissioner was delighted as it was his first parade with Police officers in the North since his appointment as Police Chief this year. Commissioner Groenewald said the North had however managed to record an improvement in overall performances by thirty per cent which was commendable when compared to other divisions.
“I commend you for the reduction in serious offences in the division. The North recorded the highest decrease in this category and can be attributed to the increased community policing approach in the division,” Mr Groenewald said.
He urged the officers to strive for better results in the next quarter.
The Commissioner also said the North had recorded decreases in crimes against women and children.
“These two KPIs focus on the vulnerable in society and are often deprived of having their voices heard against any form of violence they may be encountering.”
He said the Fiji Police should be a beacon of hope for our women and children and he commended the officers on these efforts.
