COMMUNITY policing initiatives are a step closer to residents of Ward One in Lorengau town, Manus, after the opening of a community police post.
Police Commander Chief Inspector David Yapu received the keys to the post from NKW Holdings Ltd last week.
The ‘Cop-Shop’ a government sanctioned partnership arrangement between the Royal PNG Constabulary and NKW Holdings allows immediate oversight capability for police officers to locals, Hill Side and West Lorengau House residents.
NKW chief executive Marlen Brunskill said that as a responsible PNG landowner company, NKW Holdings valued the importance of working with stakeholders.
“Policing services forms an integral part of every society and we are committed as a partner in ensuring we help contribute where we can to help create safer communities.” Ward 1 Councillor Giba Bing said public private partnerships could achieve great outcomes when there were genuine intentions among stakeholders.
He said as long as all parties work together they could achieve great results.
The Ward 1 ‘Cop Shop’ would now see police officers maintaining a fulltime presence at Ward One and also enable a quicker response time when required.
