RSIPF welcomes back second deployment to UN Mission in Darfur

THE Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) yesterday proudly welcomed back four of its officers who were deployed as the second group to the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission in Darfur, Sudan last October 2017.

The RSIPF Officers on the second UN deployment includes:

Senior Sergeant Tex Tafoa

Sergeant Nelson Kalea

Police Constable Gregory Kisina; and

Police Constable Joseph Poleita

“We are very pleased to welcome back our officers, after another successful deployment in Darfur during the past 12 months.

“RSIPF and I believe the rest of Solomon Islands are very proud of the officers’ achievements. These officers, like those in the first group, showed professionalism at all times during the deployment,” says RSIPF Commissioner, Matthew Varley.

“The deployment on the UN Peacekeeping Mission marks a great achievement for Solomon Islands and in particular the RSIPF for being able to participate in such an international deployment.

“To the returned officers, thank you for rendering your services to the UN Mission on behalf of the RSIPF and the people of Solomon Islands.”

The first deployment of five RSIPF officers to the UN Peacekeeping Mission in Darfur returned in September last year.

Three other RSIPF officers, including two female officers, are currently serving the UN Peacekeeping Mission in Darfur.
