POLICE Commissioner Matthew Varley revealed on Sunday that a Police officer who died at Taro had died of suspected heart attack.
He said that the officer died whilst on duty on Wednesday and was taken to the Taro hospital and was declared by the doctor that he died of suspected heart attack.
Commissioner Varley conveys the RSIPF’s condolence to the family and relatives of the late officer and said that losing one of their own colleagues is really a very sad moment.
He said that on behalf of the RSIPF he flew over to Taro to honour the officer on Thursday at his funeral service.
The late officer Roland Lapo served the RSIPF for 36 years and he thanks his family for their support to the officer while he serves in RSIPF.
He also reminded officers to be careful of their health and as part of the health and fitness for the RSIPF they have a gym programme funded by the Australia through the Solomon Islands Police Deployment Programme.
