Detective Training School finally opens

The Detective Training School at the Bomana Police College, outside Port Moresby, has finally opened.

The opening took place on September 15 to coincide with the country’s early 41st Independence Day celebrations.

Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner, Scott Lee, officially handed over the Detective Training School to the Royal Papua New Guinea Police Commissioner, Gari Baki.

Baki thanked the AFP for their continuous support and contributions to the RPNGC this year.

The new school in Bomana was the last project undertaken by the Papua New Guinea-Australia Partnership Program (PNG- APP) for 2016.

The school will be an enhancement for RPNGC and will also be an improvement for the general approach towards investigative reporting of incidents.
