Police officers get training on Human Rights and Law Enforcement

This follows the launch of the training program last week by Chief Training Instructor Edwin Maritua at Bomana Police Training College and will be rolled out around the country 

Twenty-two police officers, including two female officers operating in Vanimo, West Sepik Province, were the first in 2017 to complete the four-day training.

The training modules are designed to strengthen understanding within the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) on the obligation to respect, protect, and fulfill human rights while conducting their duties.
