For the first time this year, Vanuatu Police and Mobile Force members joined other organisations in Port Vila to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD).
Officers within the Vanuatu Police Force, Mobile Force and Maritime took half-day off on Wednesday to celebrate the important day through sports.
Sergeant Miltus Maliu said they have been engaging in sports every Wednesday all year round and it happens that the IWD this week fell on Wednesday, which they held a mixed competition.
NASI, the Pacific Mini Games mascot highlighted the event.
The Vanuatu Policing and Justice Support Program is applauded for its assistance to making the event a successful one.
The Australian Government aid program which has been supporting Vanuatu's policing, law and justice sector in Vanuatu for 15 to 25 years, sponsored the day's beach volleyball competition.
Four teams of mixed male and female participated and the winning team was the team from the Central Police Station.
The competition ended with a cake cutting ceremony.
Sergeant Maliu told the Daily Post that the celebration will become an annual event for them to celebrate women's rights.
