The Commissioner of Police has recognised and praised the efforts of his officers who commit their time in the communities.
Gari Baki said such officers should be given credit where it's due.
The Commissioner was in the Huon Gulf Electorate in Morobe Province over the weekend.
Morobe Patrol Post rural police station Commander James Maiwan was promoted to Sergeant and OIC Trans National Crimes Manu Pulei was elevated to Senior Sergeant.
Both members served more than 20 years within the Constabulary and had been recommended for field promotion.
