Commissioner Auapa’au expressed enthusiasm for the collaboration, emphasizing the importance of such exchanges in bolstering regional security efforts. He underscored Samoa’s commitment to supporting neighboring nations in their pursuit of modernizing law enforcement infrastructure.

Similarly, Deputy Commissioner Vailea conveyed his gratitude for the warm reception and the opportunity to learn from Samoa’s experience with the PolicePro system. He emphasized Tonga’s eagerness to leverage such technological advancements to further their own policing capabilities and enhance public safety.

As the dialogue between Samoa and Tonga continues, the exchange serves as a testament to the Pacific region’s collective dedication to fostering innovation and collaboration in the realm of law enforcement.
