The Commissioner of Police Maara Tetava officially received his master’s degree in business administration from the University of the South Pacific in Fiji this week.

 

According to a statement from the Fiji Police Force, the Pacific Community for Law Enforcement Cooperation meeting gave Commissioner Tetava a chance to meet the university vice-chancellor Professor Pal Ahluwalia and receive his credential.

Tetava, who had officially graduated with a Master of Business Administration on September 20 this year, couldn’t attend the official graduation ceremony due to work commitment.

He is in Fiji meeting with 17 other participants from around the region.

The Commissioner said this was not the first time he attended the University of the South Pacific after having graduated with a Certificate in Law in 1990.

Meanwhile Tetava, who has 35 years of policing experience, is also a co-chair of the Pacific Community for Law Enforcement Cooperation Design Group.

He previously held the chairmanship of the Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police from 2013 to 2014. Tetava was instrumental in the development of the Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police Strategic Plan 2015-2020.
