Who knows, only the Police Commissioner knows anything about this and his officers. Well they are cops, so it means they can do anything they wanted including breaking laws???
The Government of Papua New Guinea is spending a lot of money to train young men and women for six (6) intensive months at Bomana Police College to provide policing service to the community. The policemen and women are no difference to the hard working teachers and nurses employed by the government throughout the country who serve with humility, dignity and pride for their country.
Their working conditions are almost the same with housing a bigger problem for all. They are being paid by the people of PNG through tax.
While hard working teachers and nurses can diligently perform their jobs with great concern and pride which was evident through great respect from the public, the police on the other hand have lost public trust and in most cases their become very hostile to citizens. So they don't get a respect from the public.
Police brutality is one of the biggest issues in PNG. Successive governments have failed to solve this ongoing problem of police brutality. When will it stop??
Police Force is supposed to be one of the well disciplined forces in the society but the behaviours of many policemen and women indicate that they do not care or rather they do not know how to behave in a mannerly approach when dealing with cases.
So Mr. Police Commissioner, do you wanted to encourage officers to take alcohol on working hours with uniforms on? So do you allow the Government to pay them while they are enjoying drinking and causing fear and intimidating people while at work?
Drinking beer while working day with uniforms on could be an offense under the Police Atc 1998.....,////........Mr. Police Commissioner, what do you say?
