The training facilitated by the Beijing Police College is another outcome of the co-operation agreement signed between Fiji and the People’s Republic of China in 2011.

Before the team’s departure on Wednesday, the contingent was farewelled by Deputy Commissioner of Police Isikeli Ligairi on behalf of the Commissioner of Police.

DCP Ligairi reminded them of the need to be good ambassadors for Fiji.

LIGAIRI: “From the time you leave our shores and the duration of your stay in the People’s Republic of China remember that you are a diplomat and are representing Fiji in everything you do.

The training on Operation Management for the officers will cover a wide range of areas from Command Centre operations, Response tactics and Community Policing to name a few.

DCP Ligairi said he expects the return of investments for the organisation to be realised when the group returns.

LIGAIRI: “I want all those that attend overseas training to come back and show us if what they’ve learned during their training can uplift our current processes or they may have a better insight and new ideas and policies on how we can improve the way things are currently being done. The organisation needs to see the return of the investment of sending you overseas for three weeks for this training and this is what we will be expecting from all of you.”

Similar trainings have been conducted at the Beijing Police College for other Fijian Police officers and this latest group is being led by Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Kasiano Vusonilawe.
