9:44 am on 16 May 2007

Solomon Islands new Police Commissioner says the task ahead of him is challenging but vowed to address it with professionalism.

Sworn in yesterday by Solomons Governor General Sir Nathaniel Waena, former Fijian police officer, Jahir Khan, says he is proud to be given the opportunity to serve the Solomons people.

Mr Khan says his priority during his two-year term in office will be to address the problems that resulted in the lack of discipline and low morale problems existing in the police force.
