Senior police urged to help new recruits

Police in Sandaun Province have been urged to look after the young police college graduates who were posted to their province.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) for Momase Nema Mondiai said they have to play some parental roles for those new passouts posted to Vanimo in the recent graduation from Bomana Police College.

"The police career is a new profession they have chosen to (take on) and this is their first field experience. And we as seniors, let's be their parents and give them the parental advice.

"They are like our children.  Let's guide them with the dos and the don'ts. They are here to boost our strength," Mondiai said.

He said this in Vanimo yesterday ( Tuesday 27th) when addressing the police personnel as part of his farewell trip.

Mondiai will be taking up the post as the new ACP Highlands for Eastern Command next year.

Mondiai said they were fortunate to have those graduates in their province after an absence of 15 years from getting newly graduated recruits.

10 passouts including a female were posted to Sandaun Province early this month.
