A senior Inspector of Police jetted out of the country yesterday for a seven-month secondment programme with the Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police Secretariat (PICP) in Wellington, New Zealand.

Inspector Ulaiasi Tamanisau’s secondment was approved by the Commissioner of Police, Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho.

His task will be to assist the PICP’s ongoing efforts of integrating the Pacific Community for Law Enforcement Cooperation (PCLEC) activities and operations.

The secondment objective will also require IP Tamanisau to undertake various facets of project management for the PICP Secretariat.

That includes project research and initiation, planning, execution, monitoring and reporting, as well as advocacy and representation in various PICP jurisdictions.

Since 2004, the PICP has supported a Seconded Pacific Officer (SPO) Programme providing opportunities for PICP member jurisdictions to undertake secondments into the office of the PICP Secretariat based in New Zealand Police (NZP) National Headquarters.

Brig-Gen Qiliho farewelled IP Tamanisau on Friday and said the appointment was significant for the institution particularly with Fiji’s long-standing association with the PICP.

“This year will be the 50th Anniversary of the Pacific Island Chiefs of Police where Fiji will host the grand celebrations in August and your selection for the SPO Programme is a show of their continued confidence in our capabilities,” he said.

“Use this opportunity to advance your policing career.

“You are young, and have a lot of potential to become a great leader, but you need to develop yourself and learn from the many opportunities that present themselves such as this secondment with the PICP”.

After seeking nominations for the PICP 2020 SPO Programme, Inspector Tamanisau was selected and subsequently approved by Commissioner Brig-Gen Qiliho to undertake his secondment.

The PICP Secondment Programme was established following the 32nd Annual PICP Conference in 2003.
