Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary Announces Upcoming Recruitment Drive

 Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea - The Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary is preparing to significantly bolster its ranks through a major recruitment drive in the coming months. This expansion will include not only police officers but also civilian manpower.

Assistant Commissioner of Police – Crimes Hodges Ette confirmed ongoing discussions regarding the recruitment plan but did not provide a specific timeline for its commencement. He assured the public that the process would begin "shortly."

The augmentation of the police force with additional officers and support staff has been a topic of discussion for several years, according to Mr. Ette. This long-awaited plan has finally been formalized, with budget allocations secured to support the expansion. The aim is to enhance the Constabulary's ability to fulfill its mission alongside existing constables, reservists, auxiliaries, and regular officers.

The announcement coincides with the graduation ceremony of 24 police reservists who recently completed six months of basic training at the Bomana Police College.

"There is a plan to increase the number of men and women in the police force in the country," Mr. Ette said. "It has been there for several years."

The police reservist unit is one of the five main branches of the Constabulary, according to Mr. Ette. This expansion plan aligns with other ongoing programs, including the Family Sexual and Violence Unit and juvenile services.

In his address to the graduating class, Mr. Ette stressed the importance of wearing the police uniform with pride and serving the nation with respect, discipline, and humanity.

"The uniform you wear signifies your membership in the police force, serving in the reserve branch," he reminded the graduates. "Your primary duty is to serve the people, the branch, and other development programs with the utmost integrity, honesty, and discipline."

The Assistant Commissioner urged both new recruits and existing members to uphold professionalism and remain steadfast in their commitment to serving the nation with integrity and discipline.

This move to recruit additional personnel, including civilians, is a significant step for the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary. The expansion aims to improve operational capabilities and address the evolving challenges faced by law enforcement in the country.
