POLICEMEN and women are among some of the highly paid public servants and are living on tax-payers’ money but they are not doing enough to serve the communities.
Provincial police commander Chief Insp Anthony Wagambie Jr said this when addressing policemen and women during the commander’s parade at the Madang town police station last week.
Chief Insp Wagambie said that often policemen and women had complained over allowances for task performed and warned that they should stop complaining and do their job effectively.
He said some officers did very little work and complained a lot and lacked patriotism in performing their official duties to serve the people and community.
Chief Insp Wagambie warned that no policemen should be complaining for allowances for duties performed because they were enjoying privileges through tax-payers’ money like free accommodation, water and electricity and yet not doing enough.
However, he said that they lacked control and discipline in using facilities wisely because bills were mounting up to more than K4,000 a month.
Chief Insp Wagambie encouraged his men and women to cooperate and work as a team in keeping the communities safe and secure.
Chief Insp Wagambie told his officers to be disciplined and discipline their children who created problems outside the police barracks.
“I will charge any officer who thinks he or she is above the law and create problems he said.
