Manus Police move into new office

Police officers in Manus have taken up residence at the new multi-million Kina Provincial Police Headquarters in Lorengau.

Manus Police boss Chief Inspector David Yapu says he was proud to move into the new office.

The new building now houses all the policing units such as the family and sexual violence unit, Traffic, the PPC’s office and lock up cells for inmates amongst others.

PPC Yapu reiterated that the modern office also calls for higher standard of policing in the province.

He says his office has established new sections like family and sexual violence, Sexual Violence Squad (SOS) and Transnational Crime (TCU).

All these units will have separate offices in the new Police Headquarter.

The infrastructure is funded by the Australian government at a cost of K13.5m and was built by Fletcher Morobe.
