Law, justice a priority for ENB


LAW and justice remains a priority of the Rabaul district in East New Britain.
The Rabaul district development authority board recently allocated a vehicle for the maintenance of public safety in the district
District administrator Marakan Uvano said an additional vehicle would be presented to the Rabaul police station in the near future to replace the 03 Response Unit.
Speaking at the presentation, Uvano said given the increase in lawlessness in the district the presentation of the vehicle was a way forward to assist Rabaul police in the provision of police services to the community.
He said Rabaul was a small district and all attempts should be made by LLG presidents and ward members to maintain law and order as a team.
Uvano said the Rabaul district administration was currently working with the Rabaul police station commander and the ENB police commander in drafting a memorandum of agreement between the police department and the district administration for the return of reservists and auxiliary police.
He said under the MoU the reserve and auxiliary police units would be engaged to work in the communities but would be directly under the command of the police commander.
Uvano also revealed that police in Rabaul faced housing problems and the DDA board has approved funds for the construction of an 18-men single barracks to be constructed at Kurakakaul Estate.
This will be constructed as soon as funds are available.
