The Fiji Police Force’s Southern Division are trying their best to improve their performance this quarter.

Divisional Police commander southern Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Biu Matavou said this was why they held a one-day workshop for 30 community policing officers on the basics of service delivery, community policing and the law.

“Following an audit by the Police Internal Affairs Department we discovered that we didn’t do well in the third quarter, especially our ground level service provided by community post officers,” SSP Matavou said.

“There were increases in complaints against our officers, complaints against our service so I designed this workshop basically to improve our service delivery on the front line.”

He said when these officers go back to their various stations and community posts they would be able to deliver their services well and also serve their communities better.

“In this training we are trying to teach our people the basics of service delivery, basics of community policing so that officers are better equipped with the current laws and new ideas of community policing,” he said.

Community policing and post officers from as far as Dada Community Post in Namosi attended the one-day training.
