After a minor setback in Western Australia, members of the Cook Islands Police Maritime Division are back on track with their training programme.

Commander Tepaki Baxter confirmed that due to several Covid-19 infections, the programme had to be put on hold for two weeks. 

The crew are now all in the clear, and grateful for having received the support with food and drinks from the local Cook Islands residents including Association President Kiki Porio, Ta and Bucksie Upu, Angelina, June and Maara Brown, Kore Bishop and InaRua Henry, Lloyd and Rangi Matapo, Motu Maeva and Nooapii, Carl Marsters and Tete Tangaroa.

The Maritime crew would like to convey their thanks to the staff and personnel on hand at their accommodation, the Flying Angels Club, and the management staff of the Austral programme.
