Port company agrees to build police station


THE rundown Omili police station in Lae will be replaced by International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI), Lae Metropolitan Chief Superintendent Anthony Wagambie Jr says.
Wagambie said during the handover of the new police station at Malahang last week that ICTSI announced its commitment to build a new Omili station.
This will be the second police station that ICTSI will have built to support combating law and order in Lae.
The first police station was Malahang that was opened a week ago.
“Thanks to Lae open MP John Rosso for the support given to have these facilities up to help fight law and order problems in the city,” Wagambie said.
“Omili police station looks after a very large population from Ahi and block holders residing there,” he said.
Wagambie said ensuring a safe community for all would ensure developments in all sectors.
“ICTSI in a short period of time has done so much in assisting police in improving its services to the people of Lae city.”
Meanwhile, sector response unit 103 while on patrol at Kamkumung on Saturday night, apprehended a suspect with a homemade gun. His four accomplices escaped.
The suspects were at the Kamkumung roundabout and were about to hold up the unit but later found that it was a police vehicle.
Police apprehended one of them and the wounded suspect were taken to Angau General Hospital and would be charged.
The unit is monitoring Kamkumung, Omili, Speedway, West and East Taraka all the way to Tent City and the Front Road areas.
