Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) received an operation safety vest from the Solomon Islands Police Support Program (SIPSP) for officers to use whenever required during police operations on 23 August 2021.
SIPSP Commander Mike Cook says, “Changes to the New Zealand Police frontline uniform has provided an opportunity for a number of High Visibility safety vests to be redistributed to police staff around the Pacific.”
Commander Cook says, “He was happy that just under a hundred vests have initially been secured for the RSIPF and forty five of the vests would be going out to RSIPF staff in the provinces with the remaining ones will be distributed across Honiara City and Guadalcanal Police.”
In handing over the High Visibility vests to Assistant Commissioner Provincial, Joseph Manelugu, Mr Cook adds, “That the High Visibility vests would contribute to the safety of RSIPF officers, especially those working in Traffic operations.“
AC Manelugu thanked the SIPSP Commander on behalf of the RSIPF Executives for the donation of vests to support police on its operation in the upcoming events.
