The Law and Order situation in South Bougainville is now under control.
This has been revealed by Buin Police Station Commander Sergeant John Popui.
Police are working closely with the ex-combatants to maintain peace and goodwill.
At least, it’s peaceful, as people can now move freely anytime.
The perception of the once known Cowboy Town of Buin has now changed.
Sergeant Popui says law and order has taken its cause in the area.
With a manpower, of 14, police have worked hard to curb lawlessness, together with the assistance of the veterans affairs division.
Law and order is a pillar of the Bougainville Peace Agreement, and the autonomous government must ensure its clauses are fully implemented and achieved.
The South Bougainville Veteran’s Association assistance has played a significant role in maintaining peace in the area.
Leader Steven Tari says, more awareness, has helped to shape better Buin communities.
Popui and Tari pointed out the need for support, as a way forward for Bougainville’s referendum.
