Director for Traffic, Joe Joseph said so far, traffic have graduated more than 30 men and this points out goals that we have intended to achieve.

“With the new skills and the new motorcycles, it given the officers an upper hand when it comes to motorcade escorts and we are prepared.”

As the commissioner for police has indicated, the RPNGC must be ready and prepared to provide that safety and security.

“As for us the traffics, we are tasked to ensure that we provide that motorcade to the level that is required for world leaders.
