Joint forces graduate from training

The 16 participants who took part in a joint force public order management course graduated in flying colours at the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary Specialist Training Centre at McGregor Barracks this morning.

Members of the Australian Federal Police, the Royal PNG Constabulary, the PNG Defence Force and Correctional Service gathered in a small ceremony as the participants walked up to receive their certificates.

The joint force participants completed the last day of their drill training at the Oil Search National Football Stadium yesterday.

AFP chief instructor for public order management, Gary Hahn, who was present to supervise the outdoor training drill, said the training comes in handy when PNG is preparing for it most important upcoming event; the APEC Summit in 2018.

Leader representatives of the different forces encouraged the participants to bring back what they learnt and to teach and train their colleagues these important skills set.

More of the same training and drill will be conducted in future events leading up to the APEC Summit and it is important and crucial that the joint forces are prepared to provide that much field tactic to suit world standard.
