Maintain dress standard, police told

The NCD metropolitan superintendent once again stressed that this includes a neat and tidy appearance.

The NCD metropolitan superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, has always stressed on an immaculate appearance.

It was no different during a zone 1 parade this week, where police personnel at the Hohola station were reminded to maintain the highest standard of dressing and conduct.

“You are very important to the public,” he said. “If they see you are a disciplined, well-dressed, well-mannered officer, they will respect that and there will be no law and order problem.

NCD urged to take action

NCD police are urging residents to take ownership, stand together and help fight crime.

The NCD metropolitan superintendent made the call after he was informed of a social media post regarding the attempted abduction of a woman at Six-Mile on Sunday.

However, the Boroko Police Station nor the Six-Mile precinct have anything on file regarding the incident.

Chief superintendent Perou N’Dranou said while he is yet to receive a report on the matter, he wants the residents to take a stand against such incidents.

NCD police address ‘missing persons’ reports

The NCD metropolitan superintendent made this statement following numerous missing persons posts on Facebook.

Port Moresby residents have been urged to refrain from inciting fear after several individuals took to social media in recent weeks to post about missing family members or friends without filing reports with police, or in some cases, posting without exhausting all avenues.   

Metropolitan superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, reiterated that a number of those reported to be missing were, in actual fact, not missing at all.

Public urged to be vigilant

However, NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, would like that the public be more vigilant in preventing kidnappings.

He said the trend of reported kidnappings only picked up in 2018, and is the most important one to take note of in missing persons cases.

Chief superintendent N’Dranou called on the general public to help a person who may be in distress; whether they are being harassed or attacked in a public space.

Negligence, violence strong factors behind missing persons: Police

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, said this when he met with media to help get the message out to families.

Missing persons reports have increased to 2 to 3 per month, and police in NCD are gravely concerned about this.

On Tuesday, N’Dranou told media that parents, family members and even the general public need to start protecting the vulnerable from opportunists.

NCD police boss rebukes officers

Metropolitan superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, believes the best way to go is to get the basics right.

This morning, the NCD metropolitan superintendent conducted an inspection at the Six-Mile Police Station.

The Met Supt stressed on tidiness at the parade, rebuking officers with unpolished shoes, buai-stained teeth and those who were not wearing the police-issued beret. He even threw away an officer’s baseball cap.

Marked increase in NCD police arrests

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, noted a 50 percent improvement since January this year.

“If there were 10 incidents reported in Boroko, we must have at least five or six arrests,” he stated.

N’Dranou said last week, NCD police made 78 arrests out of the 84 summary incidents that were reported. Summary offences are usually considered to be less serious offences, like road traffic offences, minor assaults or offensive behaviour. 

“That is beyond the pass mark of 50 percent,” he said.

Proposed incentive ‘a double-dipping exercise’

This follows NCD metropolitan superintendent, Perou N’Dranou’s announcement, that officers will get monetary incentive for the number of monthly arrests this year.

In a statement, TIPNG says it is of the strong view that the police hierarchy need to focus on the real issues affecting the force rather than paying incentives to police officers in NCD for something they swore an oath to and are already being paid to do.

Baki disagrees with cash incentive proposal

Commissioner Baki made this comment following announcements made by the National Capital District Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, of his intention to pay cash bonuses for prescribed number of arrests made by police men and women within his command.

Sexual assault of minors still a concern

The NCD metropolitan superintendent says plans are already in place for policing strategies for 2019.

Chief superintendent Perou N’Dranou says the Police Commissioner’s annual conference late last year has given them the mandate to enforce changes.

He highlighted that one of the concern areas for 2018 was the sexual assault of minors.

“We’ve been working on it,” he said. “We saw some improvements at the end of the year (2018) and we tend to work more on it.”
