​Lae police chief welcomes new members

Lae City’s police boss has welcomed the new batch of police personnel from the Bomana Police College.

Chief Superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jr officially welcomed the boost his manpower in the Lae Metropolitan Command.

44 new trainees, including 14 female policewomen, were posted to Lae last week after passing out from Bomana.

Wagambie Jr said his executives and the personnel were overwhelmed with the arrival of the new trainees last week.

“On behalf of the rank and file in the command of Lae Metropolitan Command, I welcome you all to assist in combating crime and at the same time, beefing up manpower,” he stated.

"It's not a mistake that you have decided to join us as it is one of the noble professions and you would very much appreciate it," he said at his conference room in the presence of his executive management, including the Australia Federal Police (AFP).

The Morobe Provincial Command received their share of 15 personnel a fortnight ago and this will definitely build their strength in terms of manpower during the coming 2017 National Elections.

However, Wagambie Jnr said to enhance their youthful career in the Police Force, they have to respect their counterparts and simply follow the instructions of their seniors.

"It’s a disciplined organisation where we follow and take orders and therefore you have to stay focused to build a successful career.

“If you don't follow then you will be at the wrong side," he told them.
