New computer set for Kimbe Police

The company last May received a request from the Provincial Station Commander (PSC)  if they could assist by equipping the General Duty Counter officers in receiving and recording cases into a computer rather than manually using the Occurrence Book (OB).

The request from the PSC last year stemmed from concerns by the courts who have decreed that they are not going to accept handwritten Occurrence Book (OB) entries and secondly, most of the handwritten entries fade overtime or pages go missing making it difficult for prosecution of cases.

Kimbe police report killing

Police reported  one murder, one serious assault, wtih grievous bodily harm and  two break and enter and stealing from homes were reported to Kimbe Police on Christmas Day.

The break and enter cases occurred as tenants were celebrating Christmas away from home. Police anticipated many incidents at this time of the year, however these were the only major ones reported.
