Australia, New Zealand, PNG combined disciplined forces Training ends

The Public Order Management Tactical Trainer Qualifying program between the three discipline forces in the country and Australian Federal Police including New Zealand Police officially ended this morning at the McGregor Police Barracks. The training purposely was to teach officers crowd control especially rioting situations in the future.

Australian Federal Police Detective Superintendent Shane McLennan said they have gone through three weeks of internship training and he is happy to see participants eventually graduate from the three weeks training program led by AFP Sergeant Garry Hahn.
Papua New Guinea Defence Force Commander Brigadier General Gilbert Toropo said he was happy to see the three discipline forces in the country doing trainings together to prepare for the upcoming APEC Summit next year.

PNGDF Lieutenant Colonel Boniface Aruma said the type of training led by AFP to engage our discipline forces was crucial and he applauded them. He was pleased to see everyone contributing their efforts to host one of the biggest national events next year.

He added that such training will go a long way into the future after the APEC summit. He said preparations of APEC in the country have truly boosted the capability of the three discipline forces through the assistance of Australian and New Zealand governments.

Participants included three PNGDF Officers, three CIS officers and eight police personnel, six from Special Service Division and two from Police Public Safety Division and one AFP officer.
AFP imparted skills the officers needed and they are now ready to become trainers of local discipline forces personnel around the country for crowd control.
