In accepting their i-tatau the Commissioner of Police emphasized to the officers the importance of their role whilst on UN duty.

The head of the Police force asked to set their priorities right and be very mindful of every decision they make on the mission field.

The men were reminded of their reputation, mainly due to the consequences that would be faced should they violate any of the rules and guidelines of the UN mission.

Brigadier-General Qiliho said not only their personal reputation will be on the line but their families, the Fiji Police Force, even their vanua, and Fiji’s reputation would be tainted.
