Share the News
A member of the parliament says having an expatriate police commissioner will restore discipline in the police service.

Member for Komo Magarima, Francis Potape, said he is satisfied with the work of the Australian Federal Police and wants the government to consider appointing an expatriate as the next Police Commissioner.

 

The comment is expected to fuel public debate.

 

The work and conduct of the PNG Royal Constabulary (PNGRC) and was discussed in parliament today when Mr. Potape questioned the government of its plans on how the force can be improved in the future.

 

He asked Prime Minister Peter O’Neill if the government had any plans to bring in an expatriate to fill in the role of the police commissioner when Tom Kulunga’s term expires.

 

He also called on the government to consider deploying expatriate policemen and women to the post of Provincial Police Commanders.

 

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill while acknowledging the good work done by the Australian Federal Police said Kulunga is an experienced man and the country had so many other experienced police personnel and didn’t need expatriates to occupy this role.

 

He said the police force is slowly improving under the command of Tom Kulunga and a bill will be introduced soon to ban the use of guns by ordinary persons.
