Enhancing the capabilities of the Fiji Police Force’s maritime division is an ongoing exercise for the Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho.

These include the recently acquired Fiji Police Boat (FPB) Yavahuna which was deployed for the state funeral of the late former Vice President of Fiji Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi the past  week.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said it was an honour to be able to deploy the very best of the Force’s maritime capabilities as a fitting farewell to Ratu Joni.

He reiterated that he wanted the same level of service delivery to continue once they return to their respective Units and stations.”

Also deployed were the FPB Totogo, FPB Korovou and two search and rescue boats from the Police Special Response Unit who were on standby to conduct rescue operations in the event of an emergency.

Considering the vast area of coverage for his maritime officers, he has been looking at all possible ways of developing the Unit’s capabilities so they are able to effectively and efficiently respond to any situation.
