Yesterday the Fiji Corrections Service received four new minivans for transportation needs within the service and two ambulances.

Commissioner of Corrections Lieutenant-Colonel Ifereimi Vasu received the vehicles in Suva yesterday.

“There is a need for new vehicles because we cannot compromise the security system,” Lieutenant-Colonel Vasu said.

“We requested funds from the Government budget and they have given us $2.7million, however the four vehicles and two ambulances cost us about $1m.”

He said they needed better escort vehicles because some of their court hearings were now in Ra and other places in the interior.

“We need to take care of the security and the arrival of the vehicles should equip the officers to provide a better service.”

Lieutenant-Colonel Vasu said the officers should carry out their duties to the best of their abilities and they should make good use of the vehicles.
