The public can expect more responsive action against crime after the Fiji Police Force received 33 brand new Hilux four-wheel drive vehicles from Asco Motors yesterday.

Fiji Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said: “Today our efforts to uplift our level of service delivery to the people of Fiji is being realised thanks to the Government.”

Brigadier-General Qiliho was speaking at the formal presentation of the vehicles at the Fiji Police headquarters at the Centrepoint outside Suva.

“We have been in need of vehicles for some time now, so we are grateful to the Government for hearing our plea and supplying us with more to assist our operations,” Brigadier-General Qiliho said.

“Therefore, I do not expect to be picking up my phone and answering to complaints because you have either been unreachable or someone under your command has given the excuse of no transport.”

Brigadier-General Qiliho reminded his officers the importance of these vehicles in their everyday operations should not be undermined.

“Because once I get a report that it has been abused or misused, I will not hesitate to take the vehicle away,” he said.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said over the last few months he had gone to the Minister of Finance to fight for the need to have more vehicles.

“Over the weekend we will publicise the mobile contacts of the station officers and officers-in-charge as he wants people to communicate directly with them,” he said.
