2016 Police Commissioner’s Conference

PNG needs intelligent police officers, says Muthuvel

The Governor said PNG needs officers who are intelligent and have some understanding of the justice system. Governor Muthuvel made this remark when officially opening the Police Commissioner’s Conference in Kimbe, WNBP, last Monday.

“To become a police officer, you need to be properly educated and trained. They must be of sound mind, intelligent, mental alertness, having the physical strength and able to make split-second decisions,” Governor Muthuvel said.

Senior police officers urged to work together

He made the call during the closing of the week-long Police Commissioner’s conference last Friday in Kimbe, West New Britain Province.

The annual conference, under the theme: "Addressing Institutional Impediments to Effective Command", is to address issues which affect effective policing.

"Many of these issues exist simply because of our ignorance and inability to act or perform,” said Baki.

Police discipline process to undergo major revamp

Commissioner Gari Baki said the lack of discipline has been a major impediment to the performance and progress of the organisation in recent times.

He said there were many underlying issues in the administration of the discipline issue and the discipline symposium in Kimbe is intended to identify these issues and rejuvenate discipline issues for the betterment of the constabulary.

Over the weekend they were given a tour of some parts of the West New Britain Province over the weekend.

Deputy Commissioners of Police, Assistant Commissioners of Police, Divisional Commanders, Metropolitan Superintendents, Provincial Police Commanders and the various headquarter based Directors had a fun-filled day on Sunday with a mass at Bitokara Parish and a field day to the hot springs at Pangalu village, both in the Talasea Local Level Government area.
