A Fijian Police officer has secured a three-year scholarship offered by the People’s Republic of China.

Inspector Mavis Fatiaki will study at the Peo­ple’s Public Security University of China and is the second member of the Fiji Police Force to re­ceive the scholarship.

The university offers studies in law, foreign lan­guages, literature, criminal investigation, crimi­nology, management, information security, traffic control, forensic science.

Director International Relations Senior Super­intendent of Police (SSP) Ulaiasi Ravula said the institution was extremely grateful to be given another opportunity to send an officer to study in China.

“We have forged a close working relationship with the Ministry of Public Security and any op­portunity given to up-skill and expand the knowl­edge of our officers will always be appreciated,” he said.

“IP Fatiaki had successfully completed our three-year cadetship and held the post of Station Officer Vunidawa for the last two years and as an up and coming officer she will be given this oppor­tunity to broaden her knowledge of policing with one of the world’s leading learning institutions.”

Having only served for five years, Inspector Fa­tiaki thanked the Commissioner of Police for se­lecting her to represent the institution.

“I will not only be representing the Fiji Police Force, but Fiji and I will give my best to learn as much as possible to further my policing career so that I can better serve the people of Fiji,” she said.

In 2011 the Government of the People’s Repub­lic of China and the Government of Fiji signed a Police Co-operation Agreement, which has re­sulted in the two Police organisations exchange assistance in many forms.

Inspector Fatiaki left Fiji on Friday.
