Motorcade training underway for APEC summit

​ The Royal PNG Constabulary is training its officers in the motorcycle motorcade, in preparation for the 2018 APEC Summit.

The Traffic Directorate, in conjunction with the AFP, have been keeping traffic officers busy in the past couple of weeks.

“We have been busy training our motorcyclists and will soon be training the drivers as well.”

This first batch of officers, who have already undergone training and graduated, are now the instructors for the second batch of trainees.

There will be a third and fourth batch coming up later in the year.

About 20 motorcycles have already arrived in the country.

Joseph adds that apart from the training sessions, the general public will see that every Fridays, the motorcycling officers do their practical session outside of their training arena.

This is where the public will notice traffic motorcyclists practicing the different types of motorcades that will be used when escorting international delegates in the country.

“We ask that the general public understands what these training are for as it will be for the safety of the motorcades as well as that of the people,” he said.
