Newly appointed NCD Central Divisional Commander Silvester Kalaut has assured city residents of their safety.
He said the National Capital was fast developing and has the biggest population in the country and he was determined to tackle the management issue of officers around the city to ensure that the public is safe with the use of quality policing services.
To have this he needs the support of the public and relevant stakeholders to overcome the challenges.
He also commended police commissioner Gari Baki and NCD Governor Powes Parkop for reintroducing the police reservists to boost the number of officers in the city to monitor prime locations were the majority of the city residents frequently access such as markets, busstops and shopping centers to combat crimes because there are inadequate number of regular police officers to monitor the length and breadth of the city.
He said incidents of the reservists can be averted such as the case in the Hanuabada Shooting of two villagers allegedly by reservists this year.
“ Its how we supervise and take command and control of our reservist on the ground we do not want to repeat the past experiences we need to build on and come up with the best model that will serve the people of this nation and the National Capital District as a whole.” Mr. Kalaut said.
Mr. Kalaut started his career in the National’s Capital and served for atleast 14 years before he was posted to Madang as the Provincial Police Commander similarly the new NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Ben Turi is also served in NCD and is familair with policing in the city.
He urged officers to cooperate with the objectives of the command to deliver the utmost service to the public.
“Both of us can not do it alone the National Capital District is big for any one of us. It needs a collaborative effort to bring out the best policing for the people” Mr. Kalaut said. PNGFM
