Turi welcomes decision to halt recruitment

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Ben Turi has welcomed the acting commissioner’s decision to halt all recruitment and training for 2017.

The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary will be reviewing all existing recruitment system, criteria and protocols and procedures for this year.

This has resulted in the suspension of police recruitment and training for this year.

Turi says concerns have been raised on the training criteria, on more than one occasion, and this time, police will be focusing more on quality than quantity.

The stop in recruitment will be an improvement to the quality of the policing service in the country.

This stop is also being taken to protect the integrity of the Constabulary and to give confidence to all stakeholders, including applicants who have a desire to pursue a career with the RPNGC.
