This was what Police Commissioner Gari Baki said during the closing of the week-long Police Commissioner’s conference last Friday in Kimbe, West New Britain Province.
He stated that the two days of discipline symposium were timely.
As he had mentioned earlier during the week, this year’s conference should be the last time they address disciplinary issues.
"I expect you to revisit the Constabulary Standing Orders and practically apply the values of ethics and discipline within your respective area of command,” he told the senior officers present there.
"The Constabulary is experiencing disciplinary problems because the commanders and Non-Commissioned Officers have compromised their rank and authority.”
He said as senior officers, it is their responsibility to ensure officers down the rank and file are powered into line and reprimanded or dismissed from the Constabulary.
