Five police officers will be leaving our shores for a United Nations mission in Juba, South Sudan.
They are Inspectors Vili, Mesake and Basant along with Corporal Farooq and Police Constable Ashwin.
The officers will depart on Saturday the 4th of August and will undergo initial training for one week at Uganda prior to commencing their tour of duty.
The Commissioner of Police, Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua emphasized the policy for officers serving in UN missions around the globe, which were People, Process and Patience.
He also stressed the importance of a good return of investment whereby the officers were expected to share the newly acquired knowledge and skills once they returned to Fiji.
There are currently five other police officers from Fiji still serving in South Sudan led by contingent commander, Assistant Superintendant of Police Hiren.
