Public has a habit to put the police’s lack of service out on social media and the Commissioner of the Fiji Police Force Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho said this occurs when the station contacted is involved in addressing other criminal activities and is not able to attend to emergency calls.
To avoid this the public can directly call the command centers for the next available station.
The Fiji Police force will be revamping its training systems, processes,administrations and training courses to monitors officers peformances from the recruitment level to the highest rank within the institution.
Qiliho said many of the robbery cases occurring can be linked to the drug trade market operating in the country.
He said that it is not the lack of vehicles but the unavailability of officers at the time these calls were made.
The public is encouraged to contact these command centers if the police station they initially contacted took too long to respond.
