NEW Guinea Islands assistant police commissioner, Supt Anthon Billie, says police officers given vehicles to assist them in their line of duty must take care of these assets well and not misuse them.
He made this call following the presentation of a new vehicle for his deputy assistant police commissioner, Chief Supt Paul Kamuai at Ralum NGI police headquarters on Wednesday.
The vehicle was funded by the police commissioner’s office and purchased from PNG Motors in Kokopo.
“Accidents involving many of our police vehicles have cost the police department dearly, especially when officers tend to be careless with how they use the vehicles,” Billie said.
Billie said such opportunities came once in a while and must be appreciated.
He said since Kamuai’s transfer from Bougainville 12 months ago, he was using hire cars and the commissioner’s assistance was timely.
Billie said it was important that Kamuai had access to a vehicle to assist in his duties, to act on behalf of him (Billie) when was out of the province.
Kamuai thanked his superiors as well as the hire car firms for their patience, when the police department was at times slow in making payment for services rendered.
