LLG needs law, order services

The National, Wednesday July 13th, 2016

RURAL police stations, logistics and communication facilities are needed in remote areas to maintain law and order, an official says.
Nayaba Dei, the Salamaua Local Level Government president in Huon Gulf, Morobe, said the area was close to the industrial city but still faced law and order problems.
“The law and order committee system was established in 2000 with 33 officials in operation but they were incapable of carrying out the job,” he said.
“The law and order system must be maintained in rural areas so the people can really feel its presence.”
He thanked Morobe Governor Kelly Naru for giving them a boat to transport officials to village court hearings and to referral cases in higher courts. Naru funded two 25horsepower banana boats to the LLG law and order committee.
The two boats cost K33,000 each.
