Divisional Commander for Northern Region, Peter Guinness, says the polling will be made up of 500 officers.

Northern Command is made of the following provinces; Morobe, Madang and the Eastern Highlands provinces.

A team from the Police Divisional Headquarters (PDHQ) will be sent over to visit and assist the PPCs and Metsupt to better understand the operation order so that they can be able to prepare their operation orders.

“Once done, an operational plan will be confirmed.”

Northern Command will be up in full force

Police in the three provinces of Morobe, Madang and Eastern Highlands, started their operations as of this week and will see it through to the New Year.

Divisional Commander Peter Guinness says they expect residents to respect the meaning of Christmas and New Year and celebrate peacefully.

"We have already commenced our annual festive season police operations, making sure our people are enjoying Christmas and New Year with their loved ones.

"Police will ensure people enjoy their Christmas and New Year without trouble," he said.

Police prepare for coming elections

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Peter Guinness hosted the meeting in Ramu for his four provincial commands, namely metropolitan superintendent Lae, Morobe, Madang and Eastern Highlands.

He says while they focus on the election next year, their command's planning starts this month rather than just before the elections.

"I have gathered all my Provincial Police Commanders and Police Station Commanders as well as the line managers to plan for our election operations next year,” says ACP Guiness.
