Think like a leader and act like a leader and if you want to act like a leader, you should see that you perform like a leader.

This comment was made by the director traffic Senior Superintendent of Police Mahesh Mishra at the closing of the Motorcyclist Course at Lautoka Police Station on Monday.

Twenty-seven officers underwent one month of training at Nadovu Park in Lautoka and were all handed their Group One (1) licence at the completion of their course.

“This is another level of achievement for your career as Police officers. When you officers joined, you knew nothing about being a motorbike rider,” Mr Mishra said.

“You play a very important role on the ground now and through this training you have attained a whole new level in your career,” he said.

Mr Mishra also told the officers that they had a lot of responsibilities now as the Fiji Police Force had invested in them.

“This means by virtue of the Land Transport Act, you can ride any motor cycle on Fiji roads and what matters here is your maturity, professionalism, approach and the overall manner you behave and tackle day to day tasks in the communities you will be serving,” he said.

“You should know your crimes decree, police act and your criminal procedure act because you will be alone dealing with issues in the communities.

“As police force cyclists I know your job will not be easy therefore you need to give in your 100 per cent with the right mind set.”

He also urged the officers to be determined and get their attitudes right.

He added: “When you ride the bike, have a vision of 360 degrees.”

150 more motorcycles will be brought for the use of the officer from the Fiji Police Force in a month’s time.

The officers will receive two more weeks of training on the bikes before they are transferred to different areas in the Western Division.

The officers who went through the training were from Police stations along the Sigatoka to Rakiraki corridor.
