For the third time in a row, the Fiji Corrections Service Friday night scooped the Achievement Award during the 2012 Service Excellence Awards at the Novotel Entertainment Centre.
Added to the FCS’ list of achievement was an award won by Chief Corrections Officer Isireli Dausiga in recognition of his efforts for being an evaluator for the past five years.
Corrections Commissioner Lieutenant Colonel Ifereimi Vasu said the award signified the department’s efforts in striving to achieve its vision of being an internationally-acclaimed Corrections Service.
He thanked the staff for their individual commitment and hard work.
However he added that the FCS cannot afford to be complacent as Correction officers continue to face daily challenges in their line of duty.
At the awards night, Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said it was an honour to congratulate a selected few who had worked beyond the call of duty.
Bainimarama commended winners for leading by example.
The FCS was among 16 of the 26 government agencies that were recognised at the 2012 Service Excellence Awards.
Dausiga was among seven other individuals who were presented with plaques in recognition of their efforts.
