“I help the victims because it’s my job as a police officer and I have to feed them at home.”

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).

Yours sincerely

Frank Short
