Inspector Damien Linus took up the post just a week ago.
The appointment is timely following a request from the local MP, who raised concerns that the town has been without a PSC for a long time.
Inspector Linus is not new to the Maprik command and is determined to get things on track.
In an Interview he stated that Maprik is a district that needs full policing attention.
He further believes that policing needs to be improved.
