100 new Police Constables will be added to the Force to better the Police and population ratio after the Minister for Home Affairs and Immigration Pio Tikoduadua revealed that the Police to population ratio stands at 1 Police Constable for every 193 individuals.
Tikoduadua says they acknowledge this ratio is not sufficient to ensure optimal public safety and community well-being but despite this, Police have been able to meet their KPIs for the last 6-months.
He says this additional personnel will play a vital role in increasing police presence on the streets and enhancing their ability to respond to incidents properly.
The Minister adds that they aim to achieve a better police to population ratio.
