New reforms are taking place in the Royal PNG Constabulary, with its Modernisation Programme underway.
Reforms Acting Assistant Commissioner, Joanne Clarkson, revealed this today at a business breakfast in Port Moresby.
Clarkson said the reform projects are happening in various parts of the country, with the Australian Federal Police (AFP) providing advice whenever necessary.
According to 2014 Budget allocation, the Police Department will continue to receive funding through its Police Modernisation Programme, with K69 million.
Ms. Clarkson pointed out in her presentation during the business breakfast that the Modernisation Package will be receiving over K270 million over the next four years.
Clarkson highlighted the eight major projects under the Modernisation Programme, which include increase in the number of police personnel, additional housing and development of a forensic and fingerprint bureau.
The AFP have been providing advice towards the police modernisation programme, as well as the overall operations of the Royal PNG Constabulary, since their arrival last year.
PNG-Australia Policing Partnership Mission Commander, Allan Scott, said the modernisation programme is working well and they are happy to have it fully implemented.
