242 Police Recruits Join Force

A new journey has begun for over 240 police recruits today. A journey described by police commissioner, Gari Baki, as a life of service to Papua New Guineans.

These 242 recruits passed out of the Bomana Police Training College, as probationary constables.

They will be posted to selected parts of the country to begin police duties in the coming weeks.

Over thirty women were among the 242 police recruits, who passed out from Bomana this morning.

These recruits are the second batch of the 2016 intake which consisted of 10 squads.

Their pass out was witnessed by Commissioner Baki, senior officers from the Correctional Services and the PNG Defence Force, families and relatives.

They began training in July, 2016 and covered a range of courses from the application of PNG Law, Basic Investigation and Court Process to Weapon Handling and Ceremonial Drills.

Self-discipline and commitment to police duties were two principles Commissioner Baki emphasised when addressing the recruits.

Baki said, though having a carrier in the police force may be challenging, the recruits have sworn to protect the community they police and must maintain discipline in both their professional and personal lives

These recruits will complete 18 months of probation before they will be confirmed police officers.

Meanwhile, the 2017 recruitment for police is expected to commence in June.
