The construction of the staff houses at Bumbu Police Barracks in Lae has resumed after work came to a halt in 2014.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police for Northern Region, Peter Guiness said the construction will be monitored and evaluated once the houses are completed.

However, due to lack of funding, the construction of these duplexes came to a halt in 2014, until work resumed last week Monday.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police for Northern Region, Peter Guiness said  K5 million was allocated by the Government to build these houses.

The construction of these new police houses are being carried out by Oregon Construction.

Meanwhile, 6 duplexes are incomplete with electricity and water still to be installed.

The Government has embarked on building 6,000 houses for Police throughout the country.

Bumbu Barracks is the biggest barracks in Morobe Province that accommodates personnel for Metropolitian and Provincial Commands.

Guiness said there is sufficient land available to build more staff houses at Bumbu Barracks, after the old houses built during the colonial days were pulled down.
