Two weeks following bilateral discussions between Fiji’s Police Commissioner and the Australian Federal Police Commissioner, a senior Fijian police officer is in Canberra, Australia to further enhance policing engagements between the two institutions.
Fiji’s Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Rusiate Tudravu is in Australia and is expected to tour AFP’s Headquarters over the next few days.
Before commencing on his official tour, DCP Tudravu paid a courtesy call on Fiji’s High Commissioner to Australia, H.E Luke Daunivalu.
The visit is an outcome of bilateral discussions between Fiji’s Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho and his AFP counterpart Commissioner Andrew Colvin held on the 23rd of January, 2019 during the Australian Defence Chiefs visit.
DCP Tudravu will be visiting various AFP Units such as community policing, the command and coordination centre, forensic, narcotics and cybercrime to see how one of the world’s leading law enforcement agencies conduct their operations.
The visit is one of the highest level of engagements between the two policing institutions in over a decade.
The visit will culminate in the signing of a partnership document on policing with other law enforcement agencies later in the week.
