The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary Water Police have started the jet ski training in Port Moresby.
Nineteen police members of the Water Police Directorate will attend three-day courses over the next three weeks under the supervision of the Australian Maritime Division.
Senior Constable David Kela says the training is of the highest standard and will improve water police capability.
The jet skis will be used for general safety and policing patrols, as well as provide security searches under shipping wharves and vessel interception during APEC related events.
Inspector Glenn Finniss Maritime Advisor under the PNG-APP program stated, “The jet skis will be used for general safety and policing patrols, as well as providing security searches under shipping wharves and vessel interception during APEC related events.”
This jet ski course is the first of its kind in PNG and after three weeks of intensive training, RPNGC Water Police Instructors will be qualified to carry on any additional training in jet ski use into the future.
