The CSP is an initiative of the Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police (PICP) forum and operates across 14 countries in the region. The Pasifika programme, second phase, was launched on 5 May 2017.

Three pillars of focus:

1. Cyber Safety Awareness and Education: To ensure that communities across the Pacific will be safe and secure online our Pacific Police partners are trained to provide them with the skills and knowledge to navigate the digital landscape safely and responsibly. This course delivers training to officers from community policing portfolios within their department. It is a train the trainer model so they are able to take the learnings home and train up further staff on the delivery of the CSP awareness presentations.

2. Development of Cybercrime Legislation and Policy: Each year the Pacific Islands Law Officers Network (PILON) runs an annual Cybercrime Workshop to foster greater understanding of key areas of the Budapest Convention and enhance practical investigation and prosecution skills within an appropriate legislative framework. The workshop is organised by AGD on behalf of PILON, and attended by approximately 65-70 law and justice officials from PILON member countries, including Attorneys’ General and senior policy officials, as well as investigators and prosecutors specialising in the gathering and use of electronic evidence. Complementing the activities of the PILON and AGD, the Pacific Police Policy Network (3PN) meeting will run a focus working group to address the gaps identified in the Cybercrime Policy development for each country. [See PILON Annual Workshop Project – GFCE Code G0411].

3. Up-skilling of Pacific Police in Cybercrime Investigations: Delivery of a contextualised Cyber Investigations Skills Course will provide the members in attendance with the skills necessary to successfully investigate cyber and technology enabled crime. Collaboratively delivered these courses will equip participants with the methods and techniques to conduct more effective online investigations.

The project was also in the territories of Cook Islands, French Polynesia, Guam, New Caledonia and Niue


The project is part of the Cyber Cooperation Program.
