Commissioner Baki launches revised police recruit course

Police Commissioner Gari Baki today launched the Revised Recruit Course for the Bomana Police College in a small but significant gathering with the Australia Federal Police Mission Commander Bruce Giles and other senior officers in Port Moresby.

Commissioner Baki said: “The Launching of the Revise Recruit Course is a milestone achievement for the Bomana Police Colleague as well as the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary.

“The discipline that is taught in Bomana is totally different to get the men and women out on the field and once they get out on the field it is a command and control issue. Whatever that is taught at Bomana is thrown at the back and they do things to contrary.

“I Congratulate the Commandant and his team at the colleague for putting these lessons together so at least we can lift the standard standards in so far as disciplinary issues are concerned.

“As the Commissioner I am pleased that the curriculum has been put together within the time frame. I am accepting the documents as presented and the responsibility of ensuring the duties are complied with fall well back to the Deputy Commissioner Administration, Assistant Commissioner Human Resources and the Training Commandant at the College.

“The learning objectives in these books will be taught for our future Police officer and I appreciate the work put together by AFP officers and the Bomana Police Collage officers in achieving these results.

“I encourage more collaboration between the team in Bomana in coming up with new initiatives for the good of the organisation in the near future,” Commissioner Baki said.

He concluded that it is only start of the reviewing and modernising process for the Constabulary and he has bigger and better plans underway that will put the Constabulary on the right path to achieve its goals and objectives.
