The Regional Assistance Mission to Solomons Islands, which ends its 14 year involvement next month, has today handed over a police station in the Central Provincial capital, Tulagi.

The special co-ordinator of RAMSI, Quinton Devlin, said it is a base for the community and the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force to work together to prevent crime and maintain law and order.

He said the central location means the police are living and working among the community which he said is significant given the RSIPF's new Crime Prevention Strategy.

During its time in Solomons RAMSI has built and renovated a number of police stations and posts across the country.
