Royal PNG Constabulary issues 2016

Why police abuse is widespread: Kalaut

Kalaut says one way to reduce the current trend of unethical behaviour within the Royal PNG Constabulary, is to outsource the recruitment process.

Reputable recruitment agencies should be allowed to screen all applicants before endorsing them for enlistment.

Kalaut, who is also the Divisional Commander for NCD/Central, said this during the Police Commissioner conference in Kimbe, West New Britain, last week.

Police officers should not assault women: Turi

“No police officer is allowed to assault any mothers anywhere around the city and I condemn any activities regarding my men assaulting women,” he said in a press conference yesterday.

“We are taking care of all disciplinary issues and a lot of NCD officers have been dealt with.

“We have dismissed a good number already and more in the pipeline until we clean out all the bad apples from the constabulary,” Turi assured.

Promoted police officers confused with new roles

Assistant Commissioner of Police, Peter Guinness, revealed that their attitude always reflects their previous ranks.

“Once a constable is promoted to the rank of a First Constable, Senior, Sergeant or a chief Sergeant, they still think and act like their previous rank.

“They should think and act or be responsible for the rank they wear. This is one of the impediments to seeing changes in discipline,” Guinness said when co-chairing the police discipline symposium last Tuesday in Kimbe, West New Britain.

PNG needs intelligent police officers, says Muthuvel

The Governor said PNG needs officers who are intelligent and have some understanding of the justice system. Governor Muthuvel made this remark when officially opening the Police Commissioner’s Conference in Kimbe, WNBP, last Monday.

“To become a police officer, you need to be properly educated and trained. They must be of sound mind, intelligent, mental alertness, having the physical strength and able to make split-second decisions,” Governor Muthuvel said.

RPNGC riddled with allegations, reveals Baki

This was what Police Commissioner Gari Baki said during the closing of the week-long Police Commissioner’s conference last Friday in Kimbe, West New Britain Province.

He stated that the two days of discipline symposium were timely.

As he had mentioned earlier during the week, this year’s conference should be the last time they address disciplinary issues.

"I expect you to revisit the Constabulary Standing Orders and practically apply the values of ethics and discipline within your respective area of command,” he told the senior officers present there.
