Senior police officers urged to work together

Police Commissioner Gari Baki is calling on his senior officers to work together to eradicate the impediments within the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary.

He made the call during the closing of the week-long Police Commissioner’s conference last Friday in Kimbe, West New Britain Province.

The annual conference, under the theme: "Addressing Institutional Impediments to Effective Command", is to address issues which affect effective policing.

"Many of these issues exist simply because of our ignorance and inability to act or perform,” said Baki.

“I am satisfied that some of the recommendations discussed at the conference would be taken into consideration by the management in our efforts to enhance the constabulary's performance and operability.”

He said the Constabulary is in the forefront of law enforcement and therefore, they must set the pace for development and progress.

The event was attended by all senior officers, including deputy commissioners, assistant commissioners, divisional commanders, provincial police commanders and directors.

Next year’s conference will be held in Alotau, Milne Bay Province.
