Bomana Police Training College Commandant Chief Superintendent - Perou N’Dranou

Proposal on firearms set for police conference

Bomana Police Training College Commandant, Perou N’Dranou, says a lot of work has been put into this proposal.

“Ultimately, the aim is to put in a proper firearm policy so that in future, if approved, on an annual basis, an officer is given a permit to possess or use the firearm,” says N’Dranou.

This will allow an officer to possess or carry a firearm, often subject to a number of conditions or restrictions in regard to requirement or the completion of a firearm safety course, as well as background checks.

Police need to polish up firearm skills

Commandant for Bomana Training College, Perou N’Dranou, made the remark after the training of the Kwikila Police Station officers yesterday.

N’Dranou says it is in the best interest of the police force that all firearm users are trained on how to use weapons.

“This is the fourth firearm training that is being conducted in Kwikila for the first time for more than 25 police officers,” says N’Dranou.

“The first and second batch, who completed the firearm training, were NCD and Central officers.

College wants RPNGC memorial on its grounds

Bomana Police Training College Commandant Chief Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, says he would encourage any plans for the college to have the memorial on its grounds.

His statement follows the Police Commissioner’s call for a memorial to be built in the country. This was during the Police Remembrance Day Service last month.

“The Commissioner has also made calls to government to make Police Remembrance Day Service a holiday to enable the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary to pay tribute to their unsung heroes who died in their lines of duty,” N’Dranou adds.
