Shivneel Prasad and Kavnil Prasad, caught the first bus to La­basa from their home in Nasarawaqa, Bua, to be in time for the Police Recruit­ment Drive on Monday.

The 18-year-olds who trav­elled for two hours arrived at the Police Bure at 9am. They are tertiary students but are hopeful of working for law enforcement.

“I hope I can get this job so that my parents do not have to worry about my further education,” Kavnil said.

“It will be an honour to serve and protect our na­tion.”

Shivneel thanked the Fiji Police Force for giving equal opportunities to men and women, regardless of their religious background, to apply for the job.

“I hope I can successfully go through this prelimi­nary selection process.”

Another applicant, Kau­shik Chand of Nakama, La­basa, also a tertiary student at the Fiji National Univer­sity’s Labasa Campus, said last year a family member paid for his fees.

“I do not want to be a bur­den to anyone,” he said.

“Having seen opportuni­ties such as this recruit­ment drive, I decided to make use of it.

“I have given my docu­ments and I am now await­ing a response.”

The Fiji Police Force said it received 603 applications from the Northern Division and would soon process them.
