In his address to the officers at the Northern Region Command Center, the Commissioner Northern thanked the RPC/ northern and his staff for availing themselves at an opportunity as such to discuss issues that would better the Northern Region as a whole.
He said the Police play a critical role in the development of Vanualevu and the entire Northern Region in ensuring an anarchy free society where development can advance without any hindrance.Colonel Seruiratu said that all government departments needed to work together hand in hand and this included the share and wise use and
economization of resources available at the disposure of the various departments in Vanualevu.
Vitilevu maybe advanced in so many ways compared to Vanualevu however as it is still developing this poses a major challenge to Police in the North as we are the guardians to the changes that come in whether good or bad, he added.
The Commissioner Northern also voiced the need to reactivate the Divisional Intelligence Security involving boarder securities and its maintenance meaning the doorways in the Savusavu, Nabouwalu and Malau wharfs.
Colonel Seruiratu encouraged all officers present that they were agents of change and that it was time to re-strategise and modernize their views and approaches to policing to ensure that the Northern Borders remained crime free. He encouraged them to what he termed as the paradigm shift, the need to change the way you think and look at a problem.
