Superintendent Kombe calls it a day after 31 of years’ service

The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) held a special police parade yesterday to mark the farewell and retirement of five member of the police force.

One of them being Superintendent for Operations and Police Station Commander for Boroko Police Station Brian Kombe.

Kombe has spent 31 years in the force, having joined the police force in 1985.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Ben Turi commended Kombe during the farewell parade yesterday for the years he had put into the force in making sure the needs of the general public were met.

 Turi said Kombe had already done so much in his years in the force and had been one of the best Superintendents for Operations as far as he was concerned since the blessing was granted to me by Police Headquarters to appoint him.

“He has done tremendously as a police station commander when most of the station commanders were not around or available and has been a driving force and role model for some of our NCO’s,” Turi said.

He added that Kombe had done the RPNGC proud and it is fair that the officers farewell him and the five other officer who have also resigned in a police force parade.

Kombe was called forward for the officers to bid him goodbye with a final general salute before officially stepping off from his title.

Kombe had handed in his resignation on the October 20, 2016 and was formally fare welled from the force yesterday afternoon.
