 FIVE women are among the 57 National Capital District Commission reserve police officers to graduate tomorrow after a six-week training.

The training was to prepare them for the enforcement of the ban on betel nut in Port Moresby which starts tomorrow.

The training began on Sept 21 to teach community policing officers about police procedures, police administration, the Constitution, Criminal Code, Summary Offence Act, Motor Traffic Act, Bail Act City Rules and regulations, Court file, Types of Court and Community Policing.

Police said the NCDC city manager would recruit youths in Port Moresby to undergo the training.
