Food for Jomba detainees

The Governor’s Executive Officer, Ricky Mombi, delivered the rations on Friday 6th July at the Jomba Provincial Police headquarter.

Mombi said the assistance by the Governor’s Office was in response to a request from the Provincial Police for financial assistance to carry out essential functions.

The situation became critical in the last three months when debts where accumulated with the food supplier for detainees to the sum of K3000 owed by the Police Department.

Cell guard says detainee welfare vital

Apart from operational police officers, there are those who are tasked to take care of detainees, including a cell guard.

Cell guards are part of the Public Safety Unit responsible for the welfare of detainees in holding cells. The cell guards make sure that the detainees are fed, healthy and appear in court. They are also responsible for ensuring the cell is not overcrowded.

Teachers murdered in Madang

Madang Provincial Police Commander, Acting Superintendent Mazuc Rubiang, said while students and teachers begin the academic year, relatives of the three teachers are in mourning for their loved ones.

Carjackers escape police custody

The suspects escaped custody at the Jomba Police Station the same day.

Madang Police Commander Chief Inspector Mazuc Rubiang said police acted on information and successfully arrested the suspects on Friday September 24, but they managed to flee the police station.

Chief Inspector Mazuc Rubiang said the dark blue ten seater was taken by armed men on September 18, when the driver went to pick up an IMR officer at 4am, at New Town. Police recovered the vehicle a day later.

​New police vehicles for Madang

The vehicles were presented by Provincial Administrator Daniel Aloi, in response to the recent petition issued by landowners and residents of Sisiak over escalated crime.

Aloi also promised a police post for Sisiak, and road sealing after the general elections, while Water PNG committed free water and accommodation for police officers to live and monitor the area of crime.

Provincial Police Commander, Jacob Singura, said the vehicles come at a time of need, when the country is full on into election activities.

Madang residents fed up with crime

The protesters included landowners of Sisiak and residents of Brahim, Panim, Beon Mausrot, the corrections facility, Furan and Sisiak Village.

Banners and placards held by the frustrated group publicly carried their demands of a safer community and better road conditions.

School students and teachers joined in the march to Jomba Police Station as well.

Attempts to contact PPC Jacob Singura failed, but reliable sources say the petition also informs PPC Singura of a sit-in protest scheduled for this Friday.
