THE police force will play its role to take back PNG and its economy under the new Government, police commissioner Gari Baki says.
“The Marape-Government has announced its vision, and that is for Papua New Guinea to become a rich black Christian country 10 years from now. And we as a government organisation, will work together to achieve this bold vision.”
Baki said during the handover of the police minister’s role by Jelta Wong to Bryan Kramer at the Gateway Hotel in Port Moresby on Monday.
“We can help PNG achieve that vision by doing our job and doing it right. We can help by ensuring that our strategic and action plans are living documents that are being implemented at the district level.” Baki said.
He said to achieve that vision, there needed to be stability in the police leadership level.
“We also need good political leadership. The constabulary can only be as good or effective when there is less interference and more support from our political leadership.
“So far I am encouraged by what our Prime Minister James Marape and new Police Minister Bryan Kramer have stated in public and I believe that together we will achieve our vision of becoming a rich black Christian nation.
“The two main areas that I want to provide leadership on to assist the Government achieve that vision is discipline, command, control and reformation and restructuring and capacity-building of the constabulary.
“There is a lot to be done but we do not have the time or money to make this happen over the next two years. The clock is ticking, 2029 is the year the Marape-Steven Government has set to achieve this bold vision.
“For the constabulary, I believe we can however set the foundation now so that even after the 2022 national elections, Vision 2029 can be achieved over the next 10 years by whoever comes into government.
“Law and order is a prerequisite for growth and prosperity. And the constabulary will play a key role in assisting Government to achieve Vision 2029.”
