Acting Commissioner of Police (ACP) Raphael Huafolo

Police hierarchy clamps down on vehicle abuse

Acting Commissioner of Police, Raphael Huafolo, said: “I am appealing to the public to report to respective Provincial Commands and Metropolitan Commands of any police vehicle being parked for long periods at these areas.”

This follows his direction that all police motor vehicles are to be used for official business and only during official business hours.

This directive is to strictly monitor and control the ongoing misuse of police vehicle and also to minimise abuse of police powers and corrupt practices.

Hela operations kick off

Huafolo, who was in the province last Monday to launch the security operation, states he is satisfied with the progress of the call-out operation.

A total of 130 police and PNG Defence Force personnel are currently in Hela.

The Acting Commissioner is content with preparations being undertaken and the necessary support to boost the security operation aimed at restoring law and order in the resource rich province.
