Statesman applauds police

A senior statesman of Eastern Highlands Province has thanked the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary for providing unique policing services since the colonial administration.

Walter Nombe said without police doing the hard yards, we would not prosper in nation building.

He said they climb mountains and cross rivers – a first time for most – and he is so proud of their tireless contribution.

"I know the history of the Constabulary and that is why I am mentioning them because they are also one of the oldest existing government sectors.

"They have done a tremendous job in ensuring peace and harmony in our communities. And I applaud them for the contribution," Nombe said.

He said this during the police station ribbon-cutting and the year-end parade at Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province, last week.

He thanked Governor of Eastern Highlands, Julie Soso, for funding the refurbishment of the Goroka Police Station.
