The crime detection rate by the Fiji Police Force is currently at 69% and the target is to keep the rate at around 70%.

While giving submissions to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence on their 2018/2019 Annual Report, Assistant Commissioner of Police Aporosa Lutunauga says training programs and capacity building will help them achieve the target.

Lutunauga says they are thankful to the government for providing the necessary support such as forensics which will help the Force.

He says they are currently working with New Zealand Police in enhancing their K9 capability which will further assist in detection and investigation.

Deputy Chairperson of the Committee Salik Govind then asked why the target is 70% and not 100%.

Govind says all crimes should be detected and then questioned what happens to the remaining 30%.

He says the target should increase every year and they should not be stuck at 70%.

Lutunauga says the target was set by the Government during work carried out for the Peopleโ€™s Charter however they will try their best to reach 100%.
