POLICE Commissioner Mathew Varley says police will be providing high visibility operation during the omission and objection hearing that is scheduled for December 4.

He said several hundreds of Police officers will be part of the operation to make sure peace and security is maintained during the process of the objection hearing.

This is the very important part of the process as we approached the National General Election next year.

The RSIPF has a very important role to play and we have been working very closely with the Solomon Islands Electoral Commission in planning and prepare for the high visibility security operation to make sure that the omission and objection can be carried out safely and peaceful.

Police will be visible at the locations where the hearings will be heard and right around the country all Provincial Police Commanders have created their operational plans for deployment in their respective provinces but they will be supported by the National operation led here at the Headquarters, Mr Varley said.

“We will be establishing a Police Operations Command Centre here at the Rove headquarter which will be overseeing by my Assistant Commissioners of Police

“We want to stress here first and foremost these are very important process for our next steps in the electoral systems as we heading towards the NGE.

We are working very closely with the SIEC and we have full cooperation and communication with them on a daily basis in fact we even have a RSIPF liaison officer working several days a week with the SIEC, so we want to see this process takes its course peacefully so we are calling on all chiefs, community leaders, church leaders, elders and the public to help us spread the message of peace safety and security throughout this omission and objection hearing”, Mr Varley said.

He said that police will not tolerate any disturbance and interference to interrupt the process.
