Community partnership is priority for the Royal Solomon Islands Police (RSIPF) in Central Province this year.
Provincial Police Commander (PPC) for Central Province, Patricia Leta told SIBC News, community partnership is quite effective during the festive season.
She says their priority for 2016 is fostering partnership with the community.
“Our priority in 2016 is looking forward to fostering a partnership with the community as we did before and I am looking forward to maintaining that in 2016. I would like to appeal on community chiefs and village leaders to work together with the police and we will maintain proactive measures, but our cooperation will determine a peaceful community.”
PPC Leta adds our society would achieve peace through partnership with communities.
She said they will work closely with village chiefs, elders, youth leaders and other community groups this year.
