Yesterday marked the Australian Holiday “Australia Day”. In the Nation’s Capital today, the Boroko Police Station saw Australian Federal Police and the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary, come together for morning tea.
The Papua New Guinea – Australia Policing Partnership seems to be on track with the advisory and assistance objectives being implemented by the 50 AFP officers.
Australian High Commissioner, Deborah Stokes was also present during the event, and highlighted the importance of that partnership and what Australia Day is about.
AFP Assistant Commissioner Alan Scott, under the Papua New Guinea-Australia Policing Partnership said that obstacles remain, but jobs like urban patrolling and advisory roles that are done with the RPNGC hope to make the policing environment more efficient to combat crime.
Today officers from both the AFP and RPNGC had some time together not only to commemorate Australia Day, but also to liaise and get to know each other and of course, have some good old pie and lamington cake.
