Unit for Jiwaka police

Main Stories

JIWAKA police have embraced the province’s new family sexual violence (FSV) unit as a boost to their work in tackling crime against women and children in the province.
With rates of violence expected to increase during the Covid-19 crisis, improved FSV services are vital and timely.
Const Daisy Tamugo and Const Kawa Dingeli said the unit gave renewed hope to police work in helping survivors of family and sexual violence in the province.
“I am honoured to have this unit as it helped me do my work well to help people,” Const Tamugo, the officer in-charge of the unit, said.
Const Dingeli appealed to the community to use the unit and not rely on traditional conflict resolution practices for better outcomes.
“People tend to go through mediation and, sometimes, injuries sustained are permanent and people are in pain,” he said.
“Using the legal process is the best way to address family violence.”
The unit was built with support from the PNG and Australia partnership programme.
