Police Commissioner Frank Prendergast has appealed for close cooperation between the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) and local communities in the country.

This follows a recent incident involving an RSIPF officer accepting bribes from a bus driver after the bus was arrested for traffic offenses in Honiara.

Commissioner Prendergast told a recent media conference, the RSIPF needs to be accountable and that needs cooperation from the community.

“The RSIPF needs to be accountable and ┬áthe community needs to hold us accountable so if there’re people having information about corruption activity by police officers, I would ask that they contact the professional standards in internal investigations, command or my office with the information and I can assure you that it will be dealt with appropriately.”
