New motorcycles for Wewak police

Acting Deputy Police Commissioner and Chief of Operations, Donald Yamasombi, said the last time Wewak residents saw policemen on motorcycles was about 20 years ago. He said this time the younger generation will get a chance to see and appreciate the role of traffic police mounted on these classic looking police motorcycles.

While officiating at the handover ceremony in Wewak last week, Deputy Commissioner Yamasombi urged traffic police personnel in Wewak to use the motorcycles wisely and look after them with great care and responsibility.
