Open Days to Showcase Police Life

The Solomon Islands Police Force will stage a two-day event to showcase to the public what police life is all about.

The two days have been set for the police to interact with the public and to demonstrate the skills of policing.

Members of the public can see a wide range of skills and equipment used by the police on the allocated days, Friday and Saturday this week.

As part of what is to be showcased on the Police Open Days, SIPF Fire Services will give practical demonstrations of fire fighting techniques and a motor vehicle rescue using their newly acquired "Jaws of Life", a tool that can cut through the car doors and panels of a car so an injured person can be rescued.

A great entertainment line up has been arranged by the police, including the popular local band, Kekene.

There will be food stalls, entertainment and demonstrations of police capability.

Both days are open to the public, in particular schools and community groups.

The Police Commissioner, Mr. Mohammed Jahir Khan, is urging the public to attend and share the carnival atmosphere that is expected on the two-day event.

He said the two days are an opportunity for the communities to attend and get to know the police.

Commissioner Khan said the two days will also give the police the chance to "get to know the public and the communities we serve".
