ORO Governor Gary Juffa has commended police for maintaining law and order since he took office in August 2012.
Juffa made the comment at a reception he hosted to farewell officers from Port Moresby who were returning home for a break.
He said even though the number of police officers in the province was well below the capacity required for the Oro population, their work was beyond expectation.
“Lack of resources have not been an impediment as well,” Juffa said.
“This is a thankless job where there is always criticism. But your efforts have made Oro safe for the women and children and I am very grateful and proud,” he said
Juffa said an intelligence operation with community policing involving police from Oro and Port Moresby had resulted in the arrest of escapees and criminals.
