Policemen are never off duty, says Baki

An annual Police Remembrance Service is held worldwide to remember officers who have died whilst on duty.

The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary commemorated the day yesterday at the Bomana Police College.

Police Commissioner Gari Baki says September 29th is an important day to remember the police personnel and officers who had lost their lives to illnesses or other circumstances.

Baki says unlike other professions, policemen are never off duty and are dedicated public servants who have sworn to protect and serve the public anytime.

He adds that we are the public and the public is the police.

"The only difference being that we are paid to protect and serve our people," he says.
