An investigative Task Force will soon be put into place, to review operations of the Crimes Division of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary.
New Crimes Head, Assistant Commissioner Thomas Eluh said this, soon after taking up the post recently.
"Unfortunately, the Crimes Division is in disarray at the moment.
"There are a lot of issues affecting the Crimes Division.
"To start off with, you look at the systems, the training, structure, resourcing, funding.
"Unfortunately, that has not been atteded to for quite some time.
"So, in so many ways, this is affecting the effectiveness of the Crimes Division.
"So I have tried to embark on establishing a review task force, to have a look at all the divisions, and see how best we can be able to improve each one of them, to improve their capacities to deal with crimes issues effectively," Assistant Commissioner Eluh said.
Mr. Eluh who was former Assistant Commissioner for the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, takes over from former acting Crimes Divisional Head Chief Superintendent Mark Kanawi, whose been moved back as Director Prosecutions.
The Crimes Division comprises the National Fraud and Anti-Corruption Directorate, Forensic Services, Prosecutions, Intelligence, and the general Criminal Investigative Division.
