245 serving Special Constables marked the beginning of their Basic Recruits Training this morning with a timely reminder from the Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu on the need to maintain the integrity of the policing profession.

Batch 3 of 2019 officially marks the beginning of the regularization process of the more than 900 Special Constables in line with the Restructure process currently underway within the Fiji Police Force.

Acting Commissioner Tudravu acknowledged the patience of a number of Special Constables who have served decades waiting for their chance to undergo the training and join the regular force.

However, he urged the recruits to understand that while most were serving police officers, that they needed to start on a clean slate.

It was also a special day for some of the most senior recruits, 51 year old Kalesita Cora with 18 years of service, 51 year old  Samuela Rubuni with 25 years of service , 50 year old Selina Savu with 25 years of service and 50 year old with 20 years of service.

Also marching in were four officers from the Tuvalu Police Force.
