Police Applauds Public Good Behavior

Police Commissioner Matthew Varley.

THE Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) has acknowledged the general public at large for the good behavior shown during the recent political impasse experienced in the country.

Police Commissioner Matthew Varley told local journalist at his weekly Media conference that no security incident was reported during the course of the political issue since the No Confidence Motion was tabled into parliament.

Mr Varley said the main focus the RSIPF was to ensure all the process leading up to the election of the new Prime Minister was carried out smoothly without security disturbances.

Our security operations started on the same time the Motion of no confidence was moved and since then, we kept monitoring the situation with our visible presence in and around Honiara.

Am pleased to say that as of today, we have no any security incident in the country related to the election process and I want to thank all the respective communities of Honiara especially the chiefs, elders, religious leaders, and community members for upholding peace and safety, he added.

Mr Varley said yesterday, around 200 police officers were involved in that recent police operation.

He added the operation would not be a successful one if the members of the community and the public are not cooperative and working closely with the police to disseminate police information has also helpful to such outcome.

He also acknowledges the police officers for their efforts in looking after and ensures peace is maintained and the law and order is preserved.
