College wants RPNGC memorial on its grounds

A memorial for fallen Royal PNG Constabulary officers is expected to be built at the Bomana Police College outside of Port Moresby.

Bomana Police Training College Commandant Chief Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, says he would encourage any plans for the college to have the memorial on its grounds.

His statement follows the Police Commissioner’s call for a memorial to be built in the country. This was during the Police Remembrance Day Service last month.

“The Commissioner has also made calls to government to make Police Remembrance Day Service a holiday to enable the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary to pay tribute to their unsung heroes who died in their lines of duty,” N’Dranou adds.

“This is in hopes the event will grow bigger and better and involve the family members of the late officers.”

N’Dranou says interested parties are in talks with the RPNGC to discuss plans about the project.

A plan is yet to be put into effect once the agreements are finalised.
