QILIHO: ” We will work hand in hand and the more we work together in addressing the issues, the better for us.”

Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho made this remarks at the Opening of the National Traffic Stakeholders meeting this morning and said that the force would need to be more proactive in providing services to the demanding public.

QILIHO: ” We must be more proactive in dealing with issues, we cannot remove ourselves from the issue we have at hand. We cannot simply remove the number of vehicles because it has become affordable for the people of Fiji and we need to manage the increase of cars on our roads.”

Director of Traffic Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Mahesh Mishra said that with stakeholders present at the meeting, more collaboration could be done in addressing traffic issues.

MISHRA: ” We strongly believe in collaboration to address emerging issues we have on our roads and also assist in getting work done on time and efficiently. “
