​Lae police set for Independence celebrations

Lae Police is prepared to ensure that city residents and visitors enjoy the weekend celebrations peacefully.

Lae metropolitan superintendent, Anthony Wagambie Junior, says special operations will be conducted throughout the city.

Police will also be at the Sir Ignatius Kilage stadium today as Independence day celebrations will be hosted there.

There will be zero tolerance on intoxicated persons. Police will be on high alert and will not entertain them. Wagambie Jnr says these people will not be allowed to disturb or spoil the celebrations.

Random police roadblocks will also be set up to monitor drink driving, and those found under the influence of alcohol will be dealt with accordingly.

The Lae police boss is appealing to everyone to respect each other during this important period.​
