N'Dranou hands over reins to Philips

The outgoing training commandant of the Bomana Police Training College has now handed over the reins to the former East Sepik provincial police commander.

In a handover ceremony earlier today at the Bomana Training College, now former training commandant, Perou N'Dranou, was given the honour to inspect the parade for the last time.

The parade did a slow march pass past the outgoing as well as the incoming commandants, witnessed by senior police officials of the police hierarchy as well as family members.

The handover-takeover comes after the call by the commissioner for police for changes in some of the senior positions in the Royal PNG Constabulary hierarchy.

Today's ceremony makes official one of the 26 positions of the reshuffling.

After today, N'Dranou will be taking office as the new NCD Metropolitan Superintendent at the Boroko Police Station, leaving former ESP PPC Peter Philips to run the Bomana Police Training College.
