Police Post

Proposed police post for Gelagela

This is in a bid to seek solutions to address the escalating law and order problems in the area, over the past years which has disturbed classes, PMV services and caused general fear amongst the population.

In a site meeting recently, District Administrator Benedict Mode together with the district’s technical team met with the East New Britain Provincial Police Commander, Januarus Vosivai to discuss the way forward to boost police presence in the resettlement area.

The team visited the site, which is situated at the back of Kombiu LLG office.

Driver robbed, leader calls for police presence

This is an appeal from Thomas Morimaren, Ward 19 councillor in the Yangoru-Saussia Electorate of East Sepik Province, to local MP Richard Maru.  

Councillor Morimaren’s comments follow an armed hold up on Thursday where Jawia Primary School  grade 8 students who wanted to travel into Wewak, Wom Beach had their hired vehicle held up and robbed at Kinenien Village, about 10km from the main highway.       

He said people living between Wamayan and Baimuru want a police post to be built at Kusambuk so the police can attend quickly to crime.
