The University of Papua New Guinea yesterday held an inauguration ceremony for the new Chief of Security, Matthew Kipott.
With the student boycott last year that caused vandalism and burning down of university property, the nisew head is expected to equip the University security to handle drastic situations.
The inaugural ceremony began with the New Chief of Security, Mathew Kipott reading the new code of conduct.
Kipott experience ranges from 30 years in the Papua New Guinea Defence Force, specialised security training in Australia, America and England to being the security coordinator for the 15th Pacific Games at the Games Village.
New Security Chief Kipott hopes to equip the Uniforce to deal with such drastic situations like the UPNG unrest.
With the unrest at UPNG last year, security has become a main concern for the university this year.
Last year the university security system received help from police when a situation at the university got out of hand.
UPNG Vice Chancellor Prof. Albert Mellam has said the new chief of security is capable of taking care of the University when it comes to security.
