This was the promise made by the Commissioner of Police, Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua, to residents of Namadi when launching the Namadi Community Partnership with the Fiji Police Force at the Namadi Community Post on Saturday (28/05/11).
The Commissioner outlined 10 objectives that police officers will carry out in keeping Namadi a safe and crime free community.These objectives included hard work by all police officers and his personal reassurance to residents of Namadi that their police force is doing its best to improve its services.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“This year the Fiji Police Force has spent $94000 to train its police officers so they can serve you better,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.Ã‚Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“And we will continue to improve our service delivery by continuing with the training programs and finding out more ways in which we can serve you better,Ã¢â‚¬Â he added.
The Commissioner asked the community member to assist police in its work to fight crime and keep their neighborhood safe.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If you pitch in and do your bit than IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure we can keep our community safe and achieve all the goals that we have set out to achieve,Ã¢â‚¬Â he said.
Meanwhile, the launching the partnership saw members of the Namadi community refurbish the Namadi Community Post with new paint works, a working table and a computer set.
Members of the community also held a mini bazaar where all the money raised was donated to the Namadi Crime Committee which will use the money in funding activities aimed at forging closer relationships between the police and residents of Namadi and tackling crime in the area.
The Community fund raised over $6000. The Namadi Community Post which serves the greater Namadi area including Bayview heights is manned by Corporal Rakabatia Ravula and 10 constables.
