RPNGC networking with agencies for APEC

The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary is already networking with other relevant state agencies in preparation for the upcoming APEC meeting in 2018.

Commissioner for Police, Gari Baki, says: “The meeting is by far the biggest and most significant global meeting to be ever staged on PNG soil and therefore it is imperative for the Constabulary to heighten it security planning for this major international event.”

He says RPNGC will continue to interact with other state institutions, including the Department of Foreign Affairs, Immigration, Defence, the National Airport Corporation, Customs and others in the spirit of whole-of-government approach geared towards ensuring APEC is successfully hosted in PNG.

“The government of PNG has hosted numerous international events, including the African Caribbean meeting, the South Pacific Games last year and most recently, the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup soccer tournament in Port Moresby.”

Baki adds that many of the recruits will find the exposure to such major operations quite challenging, but in the process of being a participant, they will no doubt acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to build their career within the Constabulary.
