NCD Police Boss, Perou N’Dranou confirmed this in a media briefing on Tuesday in Port Moresby.
Perou said whilst operations have started with night vehicle checks and road blocks, but the operations will officially go into full swing when it launches in the coming week.
The Met Supt said the draft of the operational orders has been prepared and will be handed over to the NCD/Central commander for approval.
He explains because commander looks after NCD and Central Province and therefore will have to launch the operations for both commands.
However, for NCD alone, the operations have already started with a recent high visibility of policemen which has come in timely for the lead up into the Christmas and New Year operations.
The expected date of launch will be on the 18th December.
