DEAR EDITOR, when Florence Teiraru of Buala Police Station spoke at a conference currently underway in Honiara, she expressed the words summarised in the heading to this article.
Florence was explaining to her audience the need for a Family Support Centre at Buala to be able to deal with issues of family violence.
In the absence of a proper FSC facility she explained that it was her duty to help the victims.
Much of a police officer’s work requires the ability to relate to those going trough incredible hardships and show compassion, while still remaining professional.
I am pleased to acknowledge Florence’s duty of care to others in the service of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF).
