Fairly quiet so far: Police

It has been fairly quiet so far this festive season in Port Moresby.

Apart from minor motor vehicle accidents caused by intoxicated drivers, the National Capital District police boss hopes the trouble-free period is maintained.

NCD metropolitan superintendent commander, Perou N’Dranou, says Christmas is seen by many as a time for celebration and gatherings.

And while there is nothing wrong with this, he said there needs to be control.

He added that he is happy that all is going well and that this festive season has been very quiet with a more civilised approach by residents.

N’Dranou reiterated that the public needs to continue this behaviour until New Year as it is for their own good.

“Merry Christmas to everyone in Port Moresby and I urge everyone to keep up the great work of cooperation and orderly behaviour for this festive season,” he said.
