Two officers from the Nauru Police Force are joining their Fijian comrades who are attending an Intelligence Course at the Fiji Police Academy signifying Fiji’s continuous reputation in assisting small island nations.
Their participation is an outcome of a Memorandum of Understanding between Fiji and the Nauru Police Force.
They will be joining their Fijian comrades who have recently been recruited into the Intelligence Bureau.
In opening the course Commissioner of Police Brigadier-General Sitiveni Qiliho said it was imperative for officers to understand what was required of them as intelligence officers.
“Since your work is largely based on information it is also important that you are updated with the new platforms now in use for its dissemination”.
“You can’t always take things at face value and you need to be analytical and ask questions”.
He added the success of their work is reliant on the sharing of knowledge.
“For those of you who are new never think of your input as being insignificant and don’t be afraid to speak your mind because the information you possess might be the missing link’.
With the assistance of the Pacific Island Chiefs of Police, the Fiji Police Force has been able to provide training and other forms of police cooperation to several small island nations.
