Acting Police Commissioner Manning signs Reserve Police MOA with Oro

PNG Acting Police Commissioner David Manning signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Oro Provincial Government last Friday for a Police Reservist Unit to boost policing in the Northern Province.
Acting Commissioner Manning signed the MoA at the National Police Headquarters in Port Moresby with Oro Governor Gary Juffa. The signing was witnessed by staff from the Oro Provincial government and senior police officers.
Mr Manning said the MoA was significant for the Constabulary in that this would allow the constabulary to further engage with communities to develop more workable strategies in addressing law and order in and around PNG.
Mr Manning acknowledged Governor Juffa for the initiative and said law and order is a challenge that everyone should be concerned with. He thanked Governor Juffa for recognising the constabulary’s limitations in addressing law and order issues and the need for forging such partnerships.
Mr Manning reassured Governor Juffa of the constabulary’s support in this initiative he said which will be of mutual benefit to both police and the Oro Province.
Governor Juffa said the MoA was made with the intention to boost policing capabilities in the province. Under the MOA about 50 police reservists will be trained by the Constabulary and engaged within the Oro province.
“This initiative is aimed at taking ownership of law and order in the Northern Province in partnership with the constabulary. It is planned that 50 police reservists will be trained by the community policing directorate under the constabulary,” Governor Juffa said.
Governor Juffa said the Northern Provincial Government through its Provincial Executive Council has allocated K500,00.00 from the K1million allocated for this exercise to cover training, uniforms, equipment, monthly allowances, and other related expenses.
Governor Juffa said there are plans to expand this initiative further by funding a specific recruitment of an additional 30 police personnel direct from Oro through the Constabulary’s recruitment process to be trained at the Bomana Police College in 2020.
