Over a year without electricity

150 police officers and their families at Red Sea Barracks at Bomana outside Port Moresby have given NCD Police hierarchy seven days to address electricity and sewerage issues affecting them.

The Red Sea Bomana Police Barracks has been without electricity since April 2017, and proper sewerage system.

Yesterday morning the officers and their families closed off the main gate into the barracks as protest over the longstanding issues.

However, following a meeting with ACP Central and NCD, Donald Yamasombi, and senior NCD Police Members, the main gate was opened allowing movement.

Police officers have given until Monday 22nd for a proper response or else they will carry out a similar protest.
