Baki: 2016 Year of Police Discipline

Police Commissioner Gari Baki has declared 2016 as the year of discipline for the Royal PNG Police Constabulary.

In a media brief this afternoon, Baki outlined his intentions to get his senior rank and file in order so they can deal with an apparent lack of command and control.

In an 11 page address which also contained a 48 point run down of all police disciplinary offences, Baki told media that this year his administration would take a zero tolerance approach to abuse, ill-discipline and other conduct unbecoming of police personnel.

He stated that he would not hesitate to deal with senior officers who were found to be covering up or facilitating for such breaches of conduct.

Baki called for all personnel to shape up or risk being replaced, adding that the call to duty was for people who were honest, dedicated and professional in doing their work.
