The Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) has thanked the general public for the peaceful celebrations last night during the Sol2023 Pacific Games official opening ceremony at the National Stadium at East of Honiara.
Police Commissioner Mostyn Mangau says, “The opening ceremony was a success, I am happy to inform everyone that there were no major incidents reported during the ceremony last night.”
“Last night’s event is our pride, we have shown our Pacific Island countries what it means to us and how prepared we are in terms of security to ensure that all have a good experience, are safe and secure,” said Mangau.
He said, “There are police posts erected in several locations in Honiara to provide security during the games. Police officers posted there are to make sure that there are no disturbances to disrupt the peace.”
He adds the National Traffic Department of the RSIPF is also working very hard to make sure all road users follow traffic rules prior, during and after the official opening ceremony program.
“I am looking forward to more good behaviour throughout the duration of the games and onwards,” he said.
The RSIPF encourages the public to seek assistance from the RSIPF officers should they need it.
