The Commissioner of Police has recognised and praised the efforts of his officers who commit their time in the communities.
Gari Baki said such officers should be given credit where it's due.
The Commissioner was in the Huon Gulf Electorate in Morobe Province over the weekend.
Morobe Patrol Post rural police station Commander James Maiwan was promoted to Sergeant and OIC Trans National Crimes Manu Pulei was elevated to Senior Sergeant.
Both members served more than 20 years within the Constabulary and had been recommended for field promotion.
Sergeant Maiwan served Lae Police Task Force after training at Bomana and then joined MS 15 of Bulolo, before deciding to join the Public Safety Unit within the Morobe police command.
Pulei spent his young days with the Criminal Investigation Division before being attached to the Transnational Crime at Lae Metropolitan Command.
The field promotion was held in a small but significant parade, which was reviewed by the Commissioner.
Baki was in the district to officiate at the launching of the Northern Maritime Surveillance Centre at Morobe Patrol Post government station.
This pilot project is a partnership program between the RPNGC and the Huon District Administration.
