Central to beef up police presence

Police presence in Central Province will dramatically increase during the polling period.

This will be from June 24 to July 8th.

An awareness is being conducted by police officers, and a briefing will be held this week on operations during the eight-week campaign period.

Provincial police commander, Laimo Asi, said his officers had a briefing to outline the respective areas in policing during the campaign period.

"My command will localise and monitor all campaigning activities to individual police stations."

Despite informal reports of early campaigning taking place, PPC Asi said no one has officially laid complaints yet.

He said his men are ready for elections and the issuing of writs, which is just days away.

They also need the people’s cooperation.
