Mt Hagen city council backs police


THE Mt Hagen city council has supported the work of police in Western Highlands with more than K2000 for their operational costs to keep law and order.
Mt Hagen local-level government acting city manager Peter Noki presented the money on Monday to police commander Jacob Kamiak.
Noki said police and the city council were doing the same work and that is to maintain law and order and ensure safety. He said Mt Hagen was experiencing a population boom and law and order was a concern. Noki said the contribution would help police to help his officers keep the city safe.
“This is the contribution we are making to help the work of police in the city,” he said.
“The city council acknowledges the work of police and is looking at working alongside them to protect the image of the city.” Kamiak thanked the city council for the support in policing Western Highlands and the city.
He said it was first of its kind to receive such funding from a government department.
Kamiak said stationary has become a problem they have been facing for the last seven months.
“This money will go straight to help in the police work and I as the police boss would like to thank the city council for its support.”
