Operations second-in-charge commander, Chief Sergeant Tari Wilsen, in his briefing to his men this morning, told them to be always alert.
He said rumours of illegal activities have been the hot topic and urged his men to be extra careful.
Wilsen also raised concern on funding, which is likely to affect the election operations.
He said his men are conducting the operations within the budget they were given.
Meanwhile, the one day polling for the three highlands provinces begins today. The provinces include Eastern Highlands, Simbu and Hela.
