POLICE Commissioner Matthew Varley says the main focus of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) for this New Year is to maintain its good work.
Mr Varley said RSIPF is very conscious to continue its good work in the absence of the Royal Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) after they left last year.
He said one of the important and most challenge task is to ensure the sustainability of RAMSI’s legacy, which they left behind in 2017.
“I met with the National Management team yesterday (last week) to begin the year and the challenge I set for them was sustainability of RAMSI legacy and the good work and professionalism of the RSIPF in 2018,” he said.
The police chief has recently returned from his home country in Australia after a short holiday. Upon his arrival, he has met with the RSIPF National Management team to discuss the top priority areas that the force would like to achieve this year.
He said after a very busy festive season for the police force, they are now back on the deck and ready for another busy year especially to protect the rights of all citizens’ across the country.
Mr Varley added that the police will everyday be out there to deliver its professional services to the general public.
