Key officers from Papua New Guinea’s three disciplinary forces are working on a watershed legislation which they plan to table in parliament.
The legislation involves the functions and operations of the newly incorporated Joint Services College. A college established to train officers from all three disciplinary forces.
The workshop is being conducted at the CS Training College in Bomana. It will end on Friday.
The legislation will have a holistic approach on Law and Order and National Security.
It involves officers from the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary, the PNG Defence Force and Correctional Services.
Training commandants of the three disciplinary colleges are key officers participating in the drafting of this legislation.
The Joint Forces Training is a government initiative to train young leaders or cadets from the three security institutions.
It was revived in February this year, to provide the best security for the government, people, resources and investments in the country.
The first workshop was held at Lae’s Igam Barracks in Morobe.
Police Commissioner, Gari Baki, and CS Commissioner, Michael Waipo, underwent similar training in the 1990s.
This joint training is part of the government’s Vision 2050. It developed after the Office of the Chief Secretary saw that there was lack of coordination and cooperation amongst security agencies in the country.
The Defence Force Academy in Lae will be used as the training ground for this exercise.
The legislation is expected to be tabled in parliament during the first parliament sitting in 2017.
