POLICE will pay the school fees of the children of the late Snr Insp Andrew Tovere right up to tertiary institution level through its Police Legacy unit.
This was the undertaking by Comm David Manning during the funeral service held at the Sione Kami Memorial Church in Port Moresby yesterday.
He told wife Leah Wafi, their two daughters and a son, that all the late officer’s entitlements would also be made available to them.
Comm Manning said he had promised the late officer bigger things in the constabulary.
“In fact, I had quite recently mentioned to him that I was considering him for (bigger) responsibilities,” he said.
“He was a future leader but unfortunately death has robbed us of a colleague and a brother.”
Tovere, 46, was from Moveave village in Gulf.
He joined as a police recruit on Feb 19, 1997, and graduated on Sept 27.
He was posted and served there until 2011 when he attended police cadet training for two years.
In 2014, he was posted to Central.
He was recently appointed as the Zone Three commander looking after the Port Moresby North East electorate. His body will be flown to his village in Gulf tomorrow for burial.

  • What about sons and daughters of other police officers who have lost their life in the line of duty. Are the Police department also going to take care of them until they attend tertiary institutions? What about others who have not benefited same way? are you going to compensate them?
