Acting Commissioner of Police Juki Fong Chew stresses that the best way to improve on the organisation’s weaknesses is to be open to criticism.

As the 2-day Fiji Police Force and Stakeholders Consultative Workshop begins today at the Grand Pacific Hotel, Chew says to bring back the blue culture, the organisation needs to consult and take on board the views of its stakeholders and law enforcement partners to assist with efforts of rebuilding confidence in the policing profession.

He says policing is dependent on collaboration which comes with the good and the bad.

The Acting Commissioner says at the end of the workshop, the resolutions will assist the organisation to target specific areas of improvement and chart a way forward towards being a more responsive police force in a rapidly changing security environment.

Acting ACP Chief Administration Officer Meli Sateki says the 2-day workshop focuses on trying to be relevant as people are all aware of the change that is currently ongoing in the country.

He says they will also be re-looking at their strategic plans and ensure it captures the changes that have occurred in the country.

Some stakeholders present at the Fiji Police Force and Stakeholders Consultative Workshop are the Fijian Media Association, the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre, faith-based organisations and the business community.
