The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary Water Police has trained two policewomen to be part of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Leaders’ Summit maritime security operations next year.
First Constable Michaelyne Dukur and Constable Mayble Mission are currently undergoing training and rehearsal along with their male counterparts.
These officers are being supervised by Australian Federal Police adviser Inspector Terence Deltion.
Inspector Deltion was the former commander of the Sydney Water Police during the 2017 APEC meeting Australia.
“Through the engagement of experienced officers from the AFP, we are able to acquire first-hand skills and techniques, and that gives us an appreciation of what APEC maritime security operations will require,” First Constable Dukur said.
The female officers have been attached with the water police for some years without specific maritime security training.
Through the APEC preparation training, they are now more confident of performing better in the field once dominated by their male colleagues.
The PNGC Water Police has already started routine patrols along the Motuan coast, including the proposed APEC house and cruise ship sites in Port Moresby.
They will continue to conduct training and rehearsals up until the APEC Leaders’ Summit in November next year.
