The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) will commence its safe boat operation next week.
The operation will be jointly conducted with the Solomon Islands Maritime Safety Authority (SIMSA).
This is to ensure the safety of people traveling on boats and shipping vessels for their Christmas holiday.
Police Commissioner Frank Prendergast told his media conference today the new police Stabi Craft vessels will be used during the operation.
“We are intending to use the new Stabi Craft vessels we’ve got to support that operation, but it’s a very critical operation and we’ll be working with stakeholders in this to keep everyone safe for the Christmas period.”
