Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Peter Guinness said: "Drivers licences are the driver's reference and must not be withheld by police. They must return them when they complete checking during roadblocks or stop and search.”
Guinness said in many instances, police keep them and tell the drivers to collect them later. That is wrong!
Guinness made these comments during a day session in Lae on Friday with his senior management and line managers from his command (Northern).
