Following RAMSI (the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands) as the Australian led mission attempts to bring peace to the troubled Pacific Islands.
17 January 2007 | by pollnagollumSee all my reviews

A timely and politically important four-part series, Policing The Pacific is a Film Australia initiative in association with SBS Independent and over the four weeks period, details the adventures and challenges that Australian Federal Police encounter in their quest to bring justice and peace to the islands of the Pacific traumatized by civil war.

Australian Federal Agents have policed the Solomon Islands at the invitation of its Prime Minister since 2003. They join the multinational police force known as RAMSI (Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands) beneath swaying palms, on white sandy beaches. This place looks like tropical paradise but has been torn apart by ethnic violence during a four year period of civil strife. During this time rival paramilitary gangs have raped, kidnapped, tortured and murdered, yet the perpetrators often remain at large, sheltered by their local communities.

This series follows several Australian Federal Agents deployed to the Solomon Islands, where they patrol the streets of the capital Honiara, the remote and dangerous Weather Coast and outer islands that rarely, if ever, see law enforcement. The four episodes provide edge-of- your-seat, real-life drama as Australian and Pacific police risk their lives in the battle to end lawlessness in the Solomon Islands and East Timor.
