“As the new RSIPF Commissioner, I am committed to improving work practices through policies and strategies and supporting the work of the RSIPF WAN and Gender Coordinator.  Since taking up my new appointment as the Commissioner, I have also taken on the role as the Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police Executive Leader for the WAN,” says Commissioner Mangau.

“I was proud to speak at the recent Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police (PICP) meeting about my commitment to WAN. I have recommenced regular meetings with the RSIPF WAN Chair and Gender Coordinator to ensure I can foster a positive working relationship to progress action items against the RSIPF Gender Strategy.”

Commissioner Mangau adds, “I have ensured gender action items align where applicable to the new PICP WAN Strategic Direction 2020-2024 and RSIPF Strategic Directions and Annual Business Plan.
