Australia-PNG Policing Partnership

Police partnership to continue with Australia

The announcement follows a meeting between Australian High Commissioner, Bruce Davies, and Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.

"The contingent of 73 AFP will continue both in their current roles of helping to enhance Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary capacity, and in support of APEC planning. While we have seen challenges in the delivery of this program, we have also seen positive outcomes, particularly in areas such as police station arrest processing procedures," O'Neill said.
