Police chief thanks Lae residents

Lae police chief Anthony Wagambie Jnr has thanked residents for a peaceful Christmas season.

Wagambie Jnr says there were no reports of incidences and attributed the peaceful season to the behaviour of the residents.

"Police were out in full force, manning the streets on a 24-hour rotation,” said the metropolitan superintendent.

“Beats were done at Eriku, suburban police on patrol and the streets were so quiet.

“I thank the public for observing the season.”

He revealed that a number of drunkards were locked up but later released when they were sober.

"The same thinking must be extended towards the new year.

“We will again patrol the streets and I appeal to all the residents to celebrate inside their own areas," Wagambie Jnr said.

The police traffic members and the National Road Safety will also be conducting road safety operations.

The police chief thanked the Morobe Provincial Administration and their local MP for logistical support during the festive period operations.
