Two best friends and Year 13 students of Holy Family Sec­ondary School in Labasa missed their first day for Term II to attend the Fiji Police Force recruitment drive at Labasa Police Sta­tion on Monday.

Filise Tikoimaleya, 18, of Taveuni, said he always wanted to be a Police officer and when he heard about this recruitment drive he didn’t want to miss out.

“I have been preparing for this for more than two months because my dream is to become a Police offic­er,” Filise said.

“Not so that I can stand on my feet to look after myself, but support and make my family proud.”

His classmate, Nemani Qio of Kadavu, who lives in La­basa, said since childhood he always wanted to wear the Police uniform.

“I love to be disciplined and always wished to wear the Police uniform,” 18-year-old Nemani said.

“I would like to thank the Fiji Police Force for arrang­ing this recruitment so that young people like us can ap­ply.

“If I become a Police officer I will make sure to maintain law and order in the coun­try.”

Mohammed Ali, 22, of Wai­levu, Labasa, said this was his third attempt.

“I have all the necessary documents and met all re­quirements,” Mr Ali said.

“I will keep trying and hope for the best because I have plans to assist my fa­ther and younger brother.

“Unfortunately, our moth­er left us early for heaven and as the eldest son in the family I want to step up to help my family.”

The recruitment drive end­ed yesterday.
