Port Moresby police have announced the reduction in bail charged by police from K500 to K300. Head of the NCD Command, Perou N’Dranou, says the reduction is because of the increase in police arrests made over the last two weeks.

Police in Port Moresby have reported an increase in tallies on the number of arrests made compared against the number of cases reported; and because of the increase in suspects detained in police custody, the reduction in police bail is a measure taken to address the overcrowding issue at the Boroko Station.

Statistics collected from last week reveals that out of the 74 cases reported, police have made 70 arrests. Meanwhile, police are still concern on the high statistics of sexual assaults against minors reported each week.

Last week about seven cases were reported and the previous week, six were reported.
