Twenty-four senior police officers from around the Pacific have begun a two week-course in Suva on how to conduct investigations into money laundering and other financial crimes.

The course is aimed at enabling participants to acquire the knowledge and skills to deal with sophisticated financial crimes.

Most of the officers are from police criminal investigation departments in Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Cook Islands and Vanuatu.

There are also participants from the Transnational Crime Unit of the Fiji Customs.
