Police inthe National Capital have moverd to address High incidences of police brutalities. A start would be for police to first of all understand human rights andthen apply best police practices intheir duties.
Training on that has been devised to be headed by ChiefInspector Perou N’dranou.
This isthe first human rights training workshop organised bythe newly appointed NCD Superintendent Operations commander Perou N’dranou.
Here officers were given a run down onthe various human rights conventionPNG is a signatory to. Bet more significantlythey were reminded that our constitution provides for the protection of life.
Commander N’dranou toldthe law enforcersthere will be no excuse for violations ofthe rights and freedoms ofthe public.
Any violation of human rights will be net with tough disciplinary action and criminal charges.
One officer thought a change of tone is oftenthe best tactic to use if offenders don’t respond well.
It’s hopedthere will be an improverment in police attitudes when executingtheir duties. The workshop will continue tomorrow and will ultimately reach out to 900 officers in NCD.
