The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Legal Attaché, Thomas Shultz based in Canberra held discussions with the Acting Commissioner of Police, Rusiate Tudravu and senior officers who have attended the FBI National Academy based at Quantico, Virginia at the Fiji Police Headquarters yesterday.
The Acting Commissioner says the officers who have undergone training at the Academy are now holding senior posts which is a testament to the high standard of training offered by the FBI.
Since the early 1990s, the Fiji Police Force has been given an opportunity to send an officer to study at the prestigious FBI National Academy every four years.
Graduates include serving officers namely; the Chief of Administration Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Itendra Nair, Chief of Intelligence and Investigations ACP Vakacegu Toduadua, Director Operations SSP Abdul Khan and Director Criminal Investigations Department SSP Seru Neiko.
Shultz said the FBI was reviewing their current processes of delivering training opportunities to be better suited to the policing needs of the Pacific region.
“Fiji is definitely a leader in the Pacific and it has been an honour to have your officers from Fiji train with us at the FBI Academy”.
