The Tongan Police have opened a new garage and workshop on Wednesday at Longlongo Police Academy and Headquaters, a project funded by the Japanese government.
It says the project aimed at making sure Police vehicles are serviced and upgraded at all times because of the importance for them to reach out to the Tongan community whenever it’s needed.
The Hon. Police Minister Siosifa Tūʻutafaiva officially opened the new garage and the workshop and thanked the government of Japan for the project.
Hon Tūʻutafaiva said it is important for the Police to make use and take care of the new garage and workshop.
Representing the Japanese Government, Ambassador Dr Kazuchika Hamuro said his government was happy to fund the project as part of the Japan Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects commonly known as GGP.
