PNG Police Minister Tsiamilili Breaks Ground on New Police Housing in Port Moresby

 In a significant development for law enforcement infrastructure, the Minister for Police, Hon. Peter Tsiamilili, MP, accompanied by RPNGC Commissioner David Manning and PNG-Australia Policing Partnership Commander Jamie Strauss, has initiated the construction of new police housing at Gordon’s Police Barracks in Port Moresby today.

Addressing attendees at the groundbreaking ceremony, Minister Tsiamilili emphasized the pivotal role of infrastructure in the reform efforts of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC).

"As this government trains a record number of new recruits in the coming years and steps up training for our current police men and women, we must deliver the infrastructure they need to do their jobs," stated Minister Tsiamilili.

He underscored the importance of upgrading and modernizing police stations, operational facilities, including communications equipment, and significantly improving police accommodation to support the expanding Police Force's effectiveness in crime prevention.

"The new police housing at Gordon’s Barracks is being constructed as part of our policing partnership program with the Australian Government," Minister Tsiamilili announced, highlighting the collaborative efforts aimed at enhancing law enforcement capabilities.

He further revealed that new police accommodation projects in ten provinces, amounting to approximately K100 million, are being funded in partnership with Australia, while the government will finance police housing in the remaining provinces and Bougainville.

Minister Tsiamilili stressed the government's commitment to advancing national infrastructure across various sectors, including education, transportation, healthcare, and law and order, as part of the broader strategy for economic growth and nation-building.

"The strengthening of public safety and security is at the heart of rebuilding the economy and nation-building," he asserted, emphasizing the crucial role of functional police facilities in boosting morale and job performance among police personnel, especially those with families.

"Our government will continue to restore police infrastructure to what it was in decades past, and this will have a positive impact on enhancing law and order in our Papua New Guinea," Minister Tsiamilili concluded, reaffirming the administration's dedication to revitalizing law enforcement infrastructure for a safer and more secure nation.
