Policing the community with positive impacts

Thursday 3 September 2020

Five months ago Probationary Constable M. Kawage  who is attached with Fox 105, apprehended a suspect namely Steven Raphael   from Kerema.

The suspect was arrested and charged for being drunk and disorderly, in possession of a homemade firearm, and threatening to kill citizens at the Ranuguri settlement in the National Capital District

The said suspect, whilst in detention at the Boroko Holding Cell, found his faith in God and is a changed person and is now employed.

A statement released from the Royal PNG Constabulary says there are positive changes happening within  the  communities in Port Moresby, one  such changes can be noticed in the Crime Hotspot area of June Valley.

The Gomosasipo Community of June Valley have come up with a Neighbourhood Watch initiative, where the youths there have agreed  to work with the police and the NCD City authorities to address criminal activities   in their community, and also to allow for development.

They are currently using their own contributions/funds to erect an office for the Neighbourhood Watch Program.

The Gomosasipo Youth Group (GYG) is a registered association of the Youths of June Valley.
