Police see land grabbing as a breeding ground for lawlessness.
Lae police boss, Chief Superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jr, said they will work in unison with other public stakeholders to crack down on illegal settlements.
“We will join forces with Lands and other stakeholders and demolish those squatter settlements. These are some of the sources of uprising law and order issues in the city,” he said.
Wagambie Jr said these agencies are ready to work but due to issues like harassment, they do not perform.
