POLICE in Bulolo have been urged do their job according to the law.
Bulolo police station commander Insp Phillip Biwari said at a luncheon hosted by Morobe Mining Joint Venture last week at the Golden Pine Lodge that policemen and women had to do their jobs without fear or favour.
He said Bulolo had a bad record with the law but he was pleased that police duties were assisted by all stakeholders to support police operations in and around Bulolo, Wau and Menyamya.
Biwari said the police and the Bulolo urban town council and its ward councillors “took ownership of the successful police operation”.
He said concerted efforts by all stakeholders saw people enjoy their festive season adding that despite the lack of administration support they were able to execute their operations with what was available.
“It’s unusual in this township for people, who had a change of heart, welcoming a new year with respect for the law.
“Law men and women are there to assist people in anyway they can.
“I’ll make it my business to build up the good reputation Bulolo once had.”
He said police would require extra personnel for Wau, Bulolo and Menyamya.
“If this is to eventuate, there has to be accommodation and vehicles available for police to perform their duties. Bulolo police currently has 20 police personnel.
