NCD police set out to regain public trust

12/16/2017

A number of changes have been made so far since the new National Capital District metropolitan superintendent had taken office.

The NCD police are looking and working to regain public confidence in policing services in Port Moresby.

 

Recent meets with the NCD senior police officers saw the NCD Police Boss, Perou N’Dranou, stress on the implementing strategies to win back the trust and confidence of the general public.

 

This includes activities that will help improve the work of police and involve local communities to help police fight and reduce the crime rate in the city.

 

Some of those changes include the disbanding of the NCD Beat and support units, the banning of field uniforms and the establishment of a taskforce unit as per the NCD structure.

 

“Currently, the candidates are undergoing a selection process,” says N’Dranou.

 

Other changes include the implementation of drunk patrol operations during the weekends, the deployment of units for foot patrols at high risk areas, weekly parades at police stations as well as unannounced police station inspections at irregular hours.

 

N’Dranou said this is just the start of what is to come for better policing services for the people of NCD.
