Fiji's Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has warmly congratulated Rusiate Tudravu on his new appointment as acting Police Commissioner.
Bainimarama Monday received a courtesy call from Rusiate Tudravu.

Tudravu is no stranger to the people of Fiji, having spent about 38 years in the Fiji Police Force with experience that spans across the work of ensuring law and order in the country.
He graduated from the University of the South Pacific with a Certificate in Management Studies, he also undertook a Management Development Program from the Queensland Police Academy; attained a Certificate in Applied Management at the Australian Institute of Police Management and he also undertook an Advanced Security Course at Daniel K. Inouye Asia Pacific Centre for Security Studies in Hawaii.
In addition, Tudravu attained an Executive Masters in Business Administration from the Fiji National University.
Tudravu also served with the Commonwealth Multinational Police Monitoring Group to the Solomon Islands - Crisis. He is from Nasautoka Village in Wainibuka and is the current chairman for the Tailevu Provincial Council.
