New look for Hohola police station

The Hohola Police Station in the nation’s capital has a new refurbished look.

The K500,000 refurbishment was made possible thanks to the funding support of the Mineral Resources Development Corporation and landowners who own the soon-to-be completed Star Mountain Plaza in Port Moresby.

The Hohola police station sits ideally at the corner in the city’s oldest suburb; it has been around since 1974, what you see today is one of the first refurbishments since that time.

The transformation has brought about positive vibes for the police officers that work here.

MRDC Managing Director Augustine Mano believes every corporate citizen or company must have a sense of community obligation. He said the landowners that own the Star Mountain Plaza chose Hohola Police station as their project because of its closeness to the hotel, especially in the lead up to the main APEC meeting in November.

Community Leader Luke Lome thanked the landowners and MRDC for their support. He said the Hohola police station was special because the officers there are always willing to help the community.

Meantime Police Minister Jelta Wong challenged the community to look after the police station.
