MINISTRY of Police, National Security and Correctional Services has started work on improving the remunerations of police and correctional officers.

Minister Lanelle Tanangada confirmed this in Parliament on Wednesday when speaking on the debate on the Speech from the throne delivered by the Governor General on Monday.

She said it will continue to embark to review schemes that will seek better terms and conditions of their officers.

“Also with the support from the Australian government, the New Zealand government and other donor partners the Ministry is developing the Royal Solomon Islands Police and the Correctional services of Solomon Islands on their capabilities and professionalism by continuous training in policing and correctional standards.

“We have to make sure that the desired remuneration of the uniformed officers matches the standard, professionalism and quality of service they rendered for the safety and security of this nation,” she said.

Parliament has adjourned to Monday 26th August.
