The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force is yet to consider whether it will need to ask for additional security personnel from partner countries including the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) for the Pacific Games.
Deputy Commissioner Ian Vaevaso revealed that when asked by the media on Thursday.
He said they have a team that is putting together their security operational plans for the games.
SBMOnline understands that assistant commissioner Evelyn Thugea is responsible for the operations with the Games Organising Committee.
When asked whether RSIPF will use its security agreement with the PRC to seek additional support in terms of personnel, Vaevaso said that decision has not yet been made. But he said currently there are regional officers who will be here for the games from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and PNG.
He added there are also some Chinese Police officers with RSIPF as part of China Police Liaison Team in Solomon Islands.
