The Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho made this request of his officers during the Christmas Thanksgiving Service at the Fiji Police Headquarters on Friday.

“Christmas is a time to re-evaluate the way we have carried out our duties throughout the year, and if we have not been honest with our calling, this is a time to seriously look at that, and prepare ourselves for another year of work”.

The head of the Force also reiterated the need to be more compassionate with others.

“This is a time for forgiveness and remembering those that are less fortunate and irrespective of what others have done, forgive them and move on”.

In his sermon, the Force Chaplain Reverend Isireli Kacimaiwai also reiterated the importance of Christmas and its significance to the policing profession.

“God has placed us in the Fiji Police Force and irrespective of what is happening out there you must affirm that God has called you by name to be in the Fiji Police Force right now”.

“Just as God has ordained a day for Jesus to be born, he has ordained our days to be here in the Fiji Police Force”.

The Commissioner of Police has also urged his officers to visit officers throughout the Divisions.

As part of the festive season operations, members of the Fiji Police Force will be pushed forward and deployed to ensure every Fijian and visitor to our shores can enjoy the Christmas long weekend without major incidents.
