Police Bid Farewell To ACP Vuniwaqa

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Isikeli Vuniwaqa was farewelled yesterday after 34 years of service with the Fiji Police Force.

The farewell party doubled for a birthday party for the law officers as the outgoing Assistant Commissioner turned 55 years old yesterday.

ACP Vuniwaqa joined the institution on May 2, 1983 as a 21-year-old and after 33 years and nine months in the Force, it was time to say goodbye to an eventful career as a Police officer.

“I believe I’ve seen and experienced all one can as a Police officer, and there has never been a dull moment and I have so many fond memories that I will treasure forever,” he said.

“I am so blessed to be able to reach my retirement as there are many others who have left before it was their time, and I am grateful for what the Fiji Police Force has been able to provide for me and my family.”

ACP Vuniwaqa has served both locally and internationally and has held the post of Acting Commissioner of Police.

ACP Vuniwaqa has served under a number of Commissioners.

“I am grateful for their support and as the Commissioner had alluded to I will never be totally cut off from the Force,” he said.

“My wife and son are still in the Force and the institution will remain a part of my life and will be in my heart forever.”

Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said ACP Vuniwaqa’s departure would be felt by the institution.

“We must thank you for all you have contributed to the country and the institution and after 33 years and nine months you are sure to leave a legacy behind,” Brigadier Qiliho said.

“The Police Force will miss your years of experience and the knowledge bank you have and I hope that when we do come around for advice that you will be ready to accept us.”
