The Port Moresby Gordon’s beat unit carried out a recent massive arrest to rid the bus stop area of pick pockets and opportunists.

Officer-in-charge, Charles Pokom, says the exercise saw 20 men taken in by the unit for various petty crime.

He says this is in an effort by his unit to ensure that the petty crime issue in his precinct is being addressed one case at a time.

Meantime, the unit has now taken to being more proactive in their approach and part of their efforts to change their approach towards the surrounding community areas.
