Police station commander needed: MP

The lack of proper management contribute to the ill management of a police command.

This concern was raised by the Member for Maprik, John Simon, regarding the police station commander vacancy at Maprik Town police station.

Simon said Maprik police station has had no permanent PSC since the passing of the former commander.

He noted that the post has been acted upon by acting PSCs however, this needs to be changed immediately.

One of the major reasons behind his concern was that police in the district are too relaxed and there is no proper policing in the town as well as the district.

Simon said there needs to be tough discipline in policing in the district, hence the call for a new PSC.
