Milestone after milestones are being achieved by the Fijian Women Police officers.

The Fijian Women Police officers forge ahead milestones after the graduation of a senior officer, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Eileen Pickering  as a United Nations Formed Police Unit Assessment of Operational Capabilities Officer.

Hailing from with maternal links to Tavuki in Kadavu, Pickering successfully completed a demanding two week training with 34 other participants from various UN Missions to become a certified officer.

“Another boost to my achievement was being able to source inspiration from current United Nations Mission in South Sudan Police Commissioner and fellow Fijian officer Madam Unaisi Vuniwaqa in that anything was achievable by women officers from the Pacific,” the newly certified UN officer, Eileen Pickering said.

Attaining a certification as an AOC Instructor means ASP Pickering will be able to conduct assessments for Formed Police Units to qualify them for any UN Peacekeeping deployments.

ASP Pickering’s achievement will assist Fiji to be able to prepare our own FPU before deployment to UN missions as Fiji has declared its interest to deploy FPU.

ASP Pickering acknowledged the support of the Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho who supported her efforts to venture into new policing territories that will advance her policing career.
