The nurturing landscape has shifted dramatically pushing to the fore a need to raise our standard of care for our little ones, says Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho.

The Fiji Police Commissioner believes the proper care for our future is important.

“Legislatively child protection has never been significantly expressed at any time in our history as we are experiencing today, but it has been long overdue,” he said.

“I urge us all parents and guardians, to please let us not be ignorant to the changes, but instead change with change so we all benefit from the changes.”

Brigadier-General Qiliho called on Fijian parents and guardians to take care of our little ones better than how they did last year and work hand in hand in ensuring that we do it better.

“I wish to thank all parents and guardians for how far they have come with their parenting and guardian roles,” Brigadier-General Qiliho

“Amidst all challenges, you have brought your children through to this day. We are a few days away to crossover from 2018 to 2019.”

Parents and guardians need to refocus.

“Our Police stations continues to receive reports on missing persons and when the missing person is a juvenile this is a concern, not only for Police but for everyone.

“If I am to sum up my advice into one word, it would be negligence,” the Police Commisioner said.

“Negligence according to law is, a great falling short of the standard of care by any reasonable person.

“The climate of change on all fronts we are subjected to today, demands an elevated awareness on our standard of care for our children.”
