Samoa Police receive new laptops and webcams

Samoa Police said all the gadgets will assist the unit in their role to combat transnational crimes impacting Samoa and the region.

“Although these items will not provide the answers, they will certainly assist the Samoa TCU to engage with and share information across the 20 Pacific Island countries that are members of the PTCN.”

Police reunited with family after two years

The Samoa Observer reports the officers were initially to serve a 12-month mission but the global lockdown from the covid-19 pandemic delayed their return.

Police Commissioner Fuiavailili Egon Keil and senior officers held a welcome function for the officers this week.

Deputy Police Commissioner, Papalii Monalisa Tiai-Keti, says the officers arrived three weeks ago and were quarantined for two weeks before being released last Friday.

Papalii added that the police officers showed courage being away from their families for so long amidst a global pandemic.
