Police division receives vehicle


THE Rabaul police public safety section in East New Britain has received a new 10-seater vehicle to tackle law and order problems.
The vehicle was handed by the deputy chairman of Rabaul district development authority board and president of the Balanatman local level government George Warvaula last week.
Provincial commander Senior Inspector Daniel Kaiva received the keys and thanked the district for supporting the police.
He said the Police Department was unable to resource all its command and police stations.
Kaiva said that it was a classic example of the public-private partnership concept where support is received from stakeholders in efforts to maintain law and order.
He said the police were yet to achieve their targets as outlined in the Papua New Guinea strategic development plan for the reduction of public demand for police service in 2015 to one police officer per 900 people.
Kaiva said police have been trying to achieve this target.
He said they also need support from stakeholders to assist them (police) achieve this target.
“The police have been trying on their own to achieve this target and with the assistance of stakeholders, as with the donation of the vehicle will contribute to achieving these goals,” Kaiva said.
