SEXUAL Assault Office of the Royal Solomon Island Police Force (RSIPF) has been boosted with a new playroom for children.
Officer In Charge (OIC) Sexual Assault Team, Inspector Rose Nala says police officers usually investigate serious sexual offences, including those offences done against young children.
“The new play room will provide a safe and comforting environment for child victims, and children of adult victims who attend the office,” Nala explained.
“The Australian Federal Police (AFP) through Solomon Islands Police Development Program (SIPDP) has supported the RSIPF in the refurbishment of one interview room as a Children’s Retreat place,” she added.
“Soft flooring, blankets, toys, colouring books and pencils, educational charts and a small television have been purchased by the SIPDP through partnership.”
Ms Nala thanked the AFP, through the SIPDP program, for the support rendered to the RSIPF through the new playroom.
