Officers of the Royal Solomon Island Police Force (RSIPF) were commissioned to begin work on the Operation Plan for the Pacific Games 2023.

The commissioning program happened at the St Barnabas Cathedral in Honiara today.

During the Commissioning service, Dean of St Barnabas Cathedral, Reverend (Rev) Wilfred Kekea made a reference quote from the Gospel of Mathew 5:9 that reads, ‘Blessed Are the Peacemakers, for they will be called children of God’.

Rev Kekea said, “As police officers you are called to be the children of God.” He further reminded the officers that when they face challenges, they must not forget to seek God for help. “He is there to help us in whatever situation we go through with policing.”

RSIPF Commissioner Mr. Mostyn Mangau during the Commissioning Service reminded all Ranks and Files of the oath of office that they all have taken to well and faithfully serve, execute their powers and duties faithfully and diligently.

“I trust that all will obey, uphold and maintain the law and order to the best of our powers to ensure that peace is preserved,” he added.

Mr Mangau also went on to thank the officers for their continuous dedication and courage to rise to the occasion, as hosting PG23 is a historical event for the Solomon Islanders, its people and the government.

“Let’s all give our best, do our best carrying out our mandated duties and providing a peaceful and safe Solomon Islands. Let’s rise to the occasion to ensure a successful safe and green Pacific Games 2023. Remember your oath of office, we are here to serve.”

In closing, Commissioner Mangau thanked the congregation and the dean of the St Barnabas cathedral. He said “I recognize all your hard work and efforts.  Our service will be for the betterment of our country, our people, our communities and our families. —End//
