Police thank youths for providing security


GULF provincial police commander Senior Inspector Silas Wayagure has thanked youths and villagers in Miaru, in Malalau, for their commitment in hosting a peaceful convention.
He told The National yesterday that youths in the nearby villages managed to organise security for the convention because police manpower was limited.
Wayagure said he was proud of the youths for the initiative of providing security for the United Church Women without any funding
“We had 37 police officers organised to provide security for 1100 women that attended the women’s convention in Miaru Village,” he said.
“But that number was not enough, as there were more people coming in from other villages to witness the event.
“I thank the youths and organisers for the job well done.
“Though there were no funding received to carry out this operation they have made that their business to ensure that all the women were safe and things ran smoothly.”
Wayagure also commended the villagers that came to witness the convention as there were many women praising the people for the hospitality.
“I must thank the people from the nearby villages that came in to witness the convention,” he said.
He said the convention would end today and the women in travelled from Port Moresby would depart tomorrow under police escort.
