Two females and 13 men from the Fiji Prisons and Corrections Service on Monday (August 31) graduated with Red Belts after four months of grueling training at the Republic of Fiji Military Force’s Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua.
The 15 wardens were part of a contingent of 86 officers from the Fiji Police Force and the Fiji Military Force.
The Chief Guest at the graduation ceremony Commander Land Force Brigadier General Pita Driti told the graduating officers to use their new skills wisely and for good things.
He also told the officers that when Hapkido was first introduced into Fiji, many said that it was a cult, but the discipline services have changed that notion.
FPCS Public Relations Officer Fred Elbourne said that the officers who graduated will now be better equipped to carry out their duties.
“Training and upskilling is part of the Fiji Prisons and Corrections Service growth and development programme and the new skills acquired by the officers will stead them well in the execution of their duties.”
The 15 graduating officers from FPCS will be deployed to their normal stations.
