Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho says with the regularization of more Special Constables in the next financial year, he expects to see the services to pick up in many folds.

The Fiji Police Force has been allocated $200.6 million and this will see the modernization of Police Stations in Nakasi, Nalawa, Nadi and Lautoka while 257 officers will be promoted and the Force will recruit 137 new officers.

Qiliho adds that they also look forward to the recruitment of 137 new Police officers as this will beef up their manpower.

Qiliho says they are confident that they will be able to deliver again with the budgeted allocation for the Force for the next financial year.

Qiliho says the budget also provides for the completion of phase two of the restructure program.

The Force is expanding the reach of its services and aims to improve response time through the procurement of new specialised equipment, including communication equipment, IT equipment, forensic science tools, police boats and traffic management equipment.

Meanwhile, Minister for Economy, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum told the Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation Symposium that there is a need to have more Police officers.
