The Fiji Police Force has split its passout parades into divisions because of COVID restrictions for the first time ever.

The Central division pass-out parade at the Nasova police grounds saw 103 new graduates receive certificates for completing the Basic Recruitment Course. 11 officers received Long service medals and also overseas service medals.

Minister of Defense Inia Seruiratu reminded the graduates that policing is difficult if they don't have the support and cooperation of the communities.

Seruiratu says since the first case of COVID-19, Fijians of all walks of life have shown how they cared for the Police by digging deep into their pockets and finding ways to delivering meals to officers at checkpoints.

He says without their efforts there will be no national security which will then hinder economic security.
