Sexual Assault Office boosted with new playroom for children
The Sexual Assault Office of the Royal Solomon Island Police Force (RSIPF) has been boosted with a new playroom for children at the Rove Police Headquarters.
Officer In Charge (OIC) Sexual Assault Team, Inspector Rose Nala says the new play room will provide a safe and comforting environment for child victims, and children of adult victims who attend the office.
She says police officers usually investigate serious sexual offences including those offences done against the most vulnerable— young children.
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. Soft flooring, blankets, toys, colouring books and pencils, educational charts and a small television have been purchased by the SIPDP through the partnership.
Ms Nala on behalf of RSIPF thank the AFP through the SIPDP program for the support rendered to the RSIPF Organisation especially the Sexual Assault Office to provide a comfortable room for the child victims and children of the adult victims.
