Disaster team shares K1.5m in cars


THE law and justice sectors in Hela and Southern Highlands have been given seven vehicles by the Emergency Disaster Coordination Team, costing a total of K1.5 million.
Emergency Controller Dr Bill Hamblin gave five to police in Southern Highlands and two to the Hawa jail and magisterial services in Hela.
Hamblin said they wanted to see improvements in policing and maintaining law and order in the two provinces.
“We are providing the transport for easy mobility for the law enforcement agencies to boost their morale and to do more to contain law and order issues in the two provinces,” he said.
Hamblin said the Hawa jail was located outside Tari town and needed a vehicle to transport prisoners to court and back.
The district magistrate based in Tari also needed a vehicle, Dr Hamblin said.
He is pleased with the support of the disciplined forces in Southern Highlands and Hela during the earthquake in February.
Deputy provincial administrator Fibik Simon said law and order problems were on-going issues in the provinces.
He said there were many outstanding issues in the province and police needed transport to move around.

  • I am the provincial disaster coordinator for Jiwaka Province. The Province lacks financial capacity to be able to purchase a car for me. Given the immense tasks I’m faced with daily I’m humbly requesting Dr Hamblin and the disaster team to consider purchasing a vehicle for me. Eventhough you’re currently focused on SHP and Hela due to the Feb earthquake last year I also need your support as people are dying over here. Your consideration would be appreciated…. Please contact me on my email should you wish you assist… kupulj@gmail.com. Thank you so much.
