The Assistant Special Coordinator of RAMSI, Masi Lomaloma has urged officers of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force to be more disciplined in order to get the trust and confidence of the public.
Mr Lomaloma was in Buala, Isabel Province from April 15 to 17 as a member of the community consultation team on the stage limited rearmament of the RSIPF.
He was given the opportunity to address more than 20 RSIPF officers based at the Buala Police station during a “change management” session led by the Assistant Police Commissioner, Gabriel Manelusi.
Mr Lomaloma, who is from Fiji, has travelled extensively throughout Solomon Islands during the ten years he has been with RAMSI.
He said two police issues often arise during discussions with the communities he has met during his travels and these are trust and confidence in the RSIPF.
He says the solution to this two inter-related issues of trust and confidence is discipline.
Meanwhile, the Assistant Special Coordinator to RAMSI urges members of the RSIPF to adapt to the changes that are currently being implemented by the Force under the leadership of Police Commissioner, Frank Prendergast.
