Promoted police officers confused with new roles

Promoted officers within the Royal PNG Constabulary confuse their new roles with their former posts.

Assistant Commissioner of Police, Peter Guinness, revealed that their attitude always reflects their previous ranks.

“Once a constable is promoted to the rank of a First Constable, Senior, Sergeant or a chief Sergeant, they still think and act like their previous rank.

“They should think and act or be responsible for the rank they wear. This is one of the impediments to seeing changes in discipline,” Guinness said when co-chairing the police discipline symposium last Tuesday in Kimbe, West New Britain.

He said many are promoted without knowing their roles and responsibilities.
