COMMUNITY policing in Koki has helped reduced crime in the last two weeks, officer Marlon Godon said.
“About 20 Wanigela villagers and National Capital District Commission bus stop wardens had worked very hard to minimise crime in the area,” the Koki community policing officer added.
“The purpose is to maintain peace, harmony, clean outskirts of Koki market, bus top, petty crimes, violence and car robberies.
“We understand the importance of maintaining public health, safety and friendly environments. These men worked from 8am to 7pm every day, but sometimes till 8pm depending on the movement of buses and people.
“They need support from the Moresby South MP, business houses and the NCDC to end violence, petty crimes and make the city a peaceful place.”
NCDC bus top warden coordinator Benny Kaifa said the pay for bus stop wardens would be deposited into their accounts next week.
He said the community policing had helped improved public safety with the NCD governor, city manager, business houses and the public giving positive feedback.
“To maintain the services of the wardens, they must be paid. I urge the governor and the commission to sign the engagement letter of the bus stop warden programme for continuity of the good work,” Godon said.
