Fiji’s Delegation to the ‘International Criminal Police Organization’s 87th General Assembly’ led by the Commissioner of the Fiji Police Force, Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho, partook in the final and closing day of the 4-day annual meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The Assembly discussed and passed resolutions on innovation in law-enforcement, challenges faced from cyber-crime, terrorism and counter-terrorism, sharing of criminal data and human trafficking.
The evolution of technology and how it can be used by law enforcement as a tool to address these challenges was also one of the key issues of discussion.
In their respective national acceptance speeches, Kiribati and Vanuatu’s head of delegations commended the Fiji Police Force for its assistance over the years through the provision of capacity building courses, training and recruitment exercises and other policing cooperation.
Kiribati and Vanuatu will each now establish their National Central Bureau (NCB) where they can share and receive vital policing information from around the world across a range of crime areas and criminal activities.
The next INTERPOL General Assembly will be held in Chile.
