Revoke club’s trading licence: Police

It seems there are now numerous complaints about loud noise coming from these premises. 

The White House Club has been known to facilitate after parties in Port Moresby well into daylight.

While well-established clubs close off at 4 or 5 in the morning, party goers who wish to extend their club hopping often end up there.

The club is situated at the settlement along the Five-Mile, Six-Mile area and the Gordon’s residential areas.

Police need to grasp new traffic rules

NCD Metropolitan Commander, Perou N’Dranou, said at present he does not have a copy of the new road traffic laws.

N’Dranou said while the new Road Traffic Rules have come into effect on the 1st of June, police throughout NCD are still not familiar with it.

He understands police traffic officers are the only ones aware of the new laws.

N’Dranou said before police can enforce these laws, they must clearly understand it.

Stand up against thugs, residents encouraged

He was speaking in relation to the recent criminal attacks at the 2018 Fun Run event in Port Moresby.

N’Dranou said organisers of big events should not always be blamed for the misdemeanour of the few youths that cause trouble.

He said while leaders try their best to keep these youths in line, it is always an attitude problem.

The NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Commander said with a huge manpower problem in the force, police cannot be at all places at once.

NCD police go back to basics

NCD Metropolitan police commander, Perou N’Dranou, says this is part of his efforts to go ‘back to the basics’ of policing.

The Met Supt says his command will focus on getting the basic necessities correct in terms of focusing on people support despite the lack of logistics that at times constrain their work.

The city has in the past three weeks seen an influx of more foot beats and patrols in and around the business and suburban areas.

Police boss refutes claims of Schram’s arrest

The media was informed yesterday afternoon of the imminent arrest of the former University of Technology vice chancellor, which was supposedly going to happen today at 9am.

However, N’Dranou says he did not authorise any arrest.

“It is unfortunate that someone told you that Dr Schram has been or will be arrested,” said the NCD police boss.

“His case is still under investigation.

“It is yet to be completed before an arrest can be made so someone is jumping the gun here.

“I just spoke to the case officer and he still needs to follow certain processes.”

Illegal roadblock, police officers to be disciplined

NCD metropolitan superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, had issued a directive against the unauthorised setting up of roadblocks. However, 7 police officers from Gerehu disobeyed the directive during the Easter long weekend.

“Members of the public complained to me saying ‘police got money from us but never gave us the receipt’.

“So we went there and caught them.”

Upon questioning, N’Dranou said they found out that the officers themselves had decided to set up the roadblock.
