Business houses vow to help fight crime

National, Normal

BUSINESS houses will continue to support the work of police to contain crime in our towns and cities.
That was the word from the PNG National Gaming Board which was one of the major sponsors of 38th Pacific Islands Chiefs of Police Conference PICP held in Port Moresby last September.  
PNGNGB chairman Leonard Louma and chief executive officer Simon Senenge echoed this when receiving commendation from Police Commissioner Gari Baki last Friday for their support towards the conference last year.
Other business houses, non-government organisations and education institutions were also awarded certificates of participation during the PIPC last September.
“I thank you all for your generosity and I do hope that you will continue to work closely with the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary as we endeavour to promote unity and solidarity between  the police, our people and the business sector on the national front,” Mr Baki said.
Police community service programme aired on EMTV Crime Stoppers was also honoured at the gathering.
Mr Baki said: “Our good friends from the corporate sector have sustained this important community announcement service on television which is viewed by millions of Papua New Guineans.”
