The Royal Solomon Islands Police (RSIPF) works with communities to build strong relationships to maintain peace and security and prevent illegal activities.
The RSIPF’s National Crime Prevention Department (NCPD) and the Honiara Community Policing Team, supported by members of the Solomon Islands International Assistance Force, met with communities to rebuild relationships and trust and work in partnership in the fight against crime in the communities.
During these visits, the police engage with locals to understand issues their communities may have and to conduct awareness sessions. The police work with the community and encourage community and religious leaders to help keep the peace in their community and to identify and report illegal activities.
“The RSIPF seeks the support of all members of the community to maintain law and order. I remind citizens that we all have a responsibility to protect our community from criminal acts,” said RSIPF Commissioner Mostyn Mangau.
RSIPF National Director of Community Policing, Superintendent John Matamaru said the communities they visited want to establish a working partnership with RSIPF and create a safe and peaceful living environment.
“Many communities wish to set up crime prevention and bylaw committees to address illegal activities such as antisocial behavior related to alcohol consumption (Kwaso), drug addiction and domestic violence in the community,” said Superintendent Matamaru.
