Being a Corrections officer requires absolute loyalty and demands a lot of your time and resources, says Commissioner of Corrections Lieutenant Colonel Ifereimi Vasu.
Speaking at the first church parade for 2012, Lt. Col Vasu said the job was certainly a challenging one for officers and their families.
“There is a huge responsibility entrusted to us by the Government to carry out – to serve those who have been admitted to us.
“It is therefore paramount that the support from home is solid,” Lt. Col Vasu said.
He urged officers’ spouses to appreciate the immense work that they do and reiterated the importance of family support.
Lt. Col Vasu said it would be enlightening to see that inmates attend the service along with officers during the next scheduled church parade.
“We must be at the forefront while preaching about the Yellow Ribbon and second chances, so it would be good to come together and worship along with those under our care,” he said.
He thanked officers and their families for coming out in numbers today.
The service saw officers from the Suva, Nasinu and Women Correction Centres, Headquarters staff and those serving in the Naboro complex together with their respective families.
