NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Benjamin Turi has urged his policemen and women to take good care of vehicles and not misuse them.
He told the officers during the presentation of a new vehicle by the National Fisheries Authority to the Downtown Port Moresby police station that the vehicle must be used to serve the people in the surrounding communities and not for personal gain.
“The commissioner’s directive is not to see families in police vehicles, this is now an official police vehicle and we must make sure it is used to the fullest for police work,” Turi said. “It must not be misused, no drinking in the vehicle and only drivers that have permits will drive it.”
Turi said town police station has big challenge and the new vehicle would be very handy.
“There will be lots of activities by people living along the road at Kanudi and Hanuabada and there will more challenges,” he said.
“As we all know Hanuabada is a place were a lot of criminals go in with stolen vehicles and the villages will also need our support.
“So this vehicle must serve its real purpose to assist in patrols and your presence must be always felt by the people.”
He told them also to move around and protect businesses and foreigners living around town mainly on the hills and Kanudi.
