The majority of the issues encountered during the visit were lack of transport for pick up and drop offs, lack of occurrence books to register complaints, lack of weapons and none issue of police uniforms. At some stations with no transport for pick up, members for next shift such as mid-night shift (11pm-7am) had to make their own way to their respective stations during daytime and stayed around until their night shift commenced.
In response to the challenges they encountered Minister Kramer assured them that he will ensure APEC buses are donated to the Police department to be used for pick up and drop offs. He promised to address the other concerns in a timely manner as well.
