​New vehicles for Lae police

The Lae police have added three new vehicles to their fleet, thanks to the Chinese Government.

The three vehicles have been allocated to the CID Sexual Offences Squad, Juvenile Justice Unit and the traffic section for Road Safety Awareness.

Lae metropolitan superintendent, Anthony Wagambie Jnr, said: “This command had requested to be allocated some but due to administrative hiccups, we only received them last week Friday.

“My management team have allocated the three vehicles to CID Sexual Offences Squad, Juvenile Justice Unit and the Traffic section for Road Safety Awareness and back up to the PMV Squad to curtail untrustworthy vehicles.

“The Sexual Offences Squad and Juvenile Justice Unit have been without a vehicle to effectively carry out their duties.

“The Traffic Unit has one vehicle and this addition will strengthen their work. I intend to embark on more road safety work with the Traffic Unit, Public Relations Unit in collaboration with the Road Safety Council and Land Transport Board.

“The arrival of the new vehicles has come as a blessing and is timely,” he said.
