EAST Sepik police commander Supt Albert Beli has thanked all police reservists for assisting regular police officers over the years.
Supt Beli said Police Commissioner David Manning had ordered last week that police reservists should go home because some had been misbehaving.
Supt Beli thanked them for their service and that their absence would be felt by the regular officers and the people.
He said manpower would be affected in the province.
He told police station commanders to pass on the commissioner’s order to the reservists.
He called on the regular police officers to pull up their socks and work harder to make sure people were being served.
“I know you can do it because you have been trained to become a police officer,” he said.
“I also call on village leaders to take responsibility of law and order issues in their areas to assist the police during the manpower shortage.”
He also thanked the police department for supplying fuel for the Independence Day anniversary operation.
Their only problem now is the lack of vehicles.
East New Britain police commander Chief Insp Joseph Tabali has also told police reservists to stand down from today.
He said those caught still in uniform would be charged with impersonation and no police reservist should be wearing a police uniform in the province.
