Officers of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) at Tulagi Police Station in Central Province have conducted a day workshop with the Crime Prevention Committee (CPC) at Kulikau Tabu Home Stay on 10 September 2021.
The workshop is for the Crime Prevention Committee members covering sun vesture ward one in Central Province.
The workshop covered the five components of the crime prevention strategy 2019-2022 to address the five drivers of crime and the use of the SARA model- Scanning, Assess, Responses and Analysis, a model to solve problems and link between governance setting and CPC partnership.
Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Central Province, Superintendent David Soakai acknowledged the CPC for their time and effort rendering to their hard working support in the community to reduce crimes. This workshop is to re-equip you to move forward in your duties to support the work of the chiefs in the community.
PPC Soakai says, “The strategy is one of the tools in which police used to operationalise the proactive approaches in terms of policing down to the community. It did not change anything within the community set-up but to re-enforce the strength of taking ownership within our culture and custom of solving problems.”
Speaking during the Workshop, Community Policing Officer Central Province Constable Mumane told the committees that you are identified by your community to become a CPC member and that you are the eyes, and voice of the police in your community to work in partnership to reduce crime, protect the venerable and to educate our people.”
“I appeal to all CPC’s in Central Province to stay calm while the program continues to roll out. I also appeal to all communities in Central Province to respect the work of the CPC’s in the community together with the chiefs for the betterment of our community and our generation,” says PPC Soakai.
