Police constables joins mobile squad unit


A GROUP of 16 police constables in Southern Highlands received their certificates last Friday to join the Mobile Squad unit.
The squad now had 45 members. They were part of a three-week training in Mendi funded by Kagua-Erave MP James Lagea.
Mobile squad acting commander Chief Sergeant Fomes Karona said the training was conducted for the first time in 10 years because of the lack of funding.
“We selected police from the five district police stations,” he said.
He said they had only two vehicles and needed more.
Assistant Police Commissioner (Highlands divisional command eastern end) Chief Supt Kaiglo Ambane said there were vast changes the country was experiencing and the increase in population required an increase in police manpower.
He said police were gearing up for the 2017 general election.
“Provincial police commanders and station commanders must encourage their officers to further their studies and gain diplomas and degrees,” he said.
Ambane said people loved to criticise police for failing to carry out their duties but they should realise that police need help too.
