Members of the public are welcome to lodge their complaints directly with senior police officers if their complaints are not attended to.
Police Commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua said people should not hesitate to come forward with their complaints.
Brig-Gen Naivalurua said if reports were not attended to efficiently by his officers, people had every right to call senior officers and lodge their complaints about police inaction.
“Our mobile contacts are printed in the media every now and then and we are ready to provide answers to queries from the public,” he said.
“Police officers are obliged to provide complainants with feedback on updates of investigations.
“Members of the public should demand feedback from police officers.”
Speaking on the same topic, Acting Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu said Fijians of Indian descent regularly exercise their rights to raise their concerns with senior officers compared to iTaukei people.
“This may stem out of the respect the iTaukei people have for police officers,” said ACP Tudravu.
