New Maprik police station commander

Maprik Town in East Sepik Province will see a boost in policing with the help of the newly-appointed police station commander.

Inspector Damien Linus took up the post just a week ago.

The appointment is timely following a request from the local MP, who raised concerns that the town has been without a PSC for a long time.

Inspector Linus is not new to the Maprik command and is determined to get things on track.

In an Interview he stated that Maprik is a district that needs full policing attention.

He further believes that policing needs to be improved.

The PSC has welcomed the post and says he will ensure that law and order in Maprik Town, as well as the district, is carried out effectively.
