Police monitor people’s moves


POLICE in East Sepik have been deployed to certain locations to monitor the movement of people entering and leaving the province during the nationwide national state of emergency and 14-day lockdown period.
East Sepik police commander Supt Albert Beli said 700 police officers – three quarters of which were auxiliary officers – were monitoring the highway, sea and conducting awareness in the villages and are on standby for emergency calls.
Supt Beli said this during a parade on Wednesday where police station commanders from the province were briefed on what to do during the state of emergency and the lockdown period.
He said areas they would be concentrating on would be the two highways and the sea and the Sepik River.
“I am warning vanilla traders from the province who are travelling to Vanimo and then to Jayapura to intimately stop,” he said.
