Keep Up Tempo, Minister Urges Frontliners

Minister for Defence, National Security and Policing, and Rural and Maritime Development and Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu visited the three major designated containment borders within the Central Division today to personally acknowledge police officers for their service and sacrifices in serving on the frontline of Government’s COVID-19 operations.

He also visited officers based at the Fiji Police Academy in Nasova and the Transport Pool at Nasese, Suva.

As part of today’s visit, the Hon. Minister also personally visited officers currently based at the various Forward Command Base around Suva.

While addressing the officers during the visit, Minister Seruiratu thanked the officers and also encouraged them to remain patriotic and loyal to the responsibility bestowed upon them by the country.

“We need to keep up with the tempo. There have been lots of criticisms and misinformation, but I think for us, we are all above this, so let’s keep up the good work,” he said.

“We have a big responsibility to get us through this. Fiji needs us. This is a very critical time and hopefully this will be over and done with soon.”

“Let’s also look out for one another”

The Minister urged the officers to observe all protocols in place and maintain their level of discipline and professionalism.

“Let not laxity and complacency creep into the system,” he added.

Minister Seruiratu also acknowledged the support by families of police officers currently on deployment for COVID-19 operations, saying this had been a strong driving force in their participation in Government’s containment efforts.
