Fiji Sun - - Pacific News -

Avarua: Cook Is­lands Po­lice are close to fi­nal­is­ing a new emer­gency re­sponse process in the wake of the coun­try’s first triple-shoot­ing fa­tal­i­ties nearly two years ago.

A re­view made 15 ma­jor rec­om­men­da­tions for changes within the Cook Is­lands Po­lice Ser­vice. Po­lice Com­mis­sioner Maara Te­tava says they have been con­sult­ing with the Aus­tralian Fed­eral Po­lice and New Zealand Po­lice on how to en­hance the abil­ity of of­fi­cers to re­spond to vi­o­lent and life-threat­en­ing in­ci­dents.
