(Report by Police Media Officer, Inspector Tumbe Sam.)
Police Commissioner David Manning will launch the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary official website tomorrow (Friday 28 April 2023), in Port Moresby.
Commissioner Manning said the website will redefine the Constabulary engagement with the community and the approach to modern policing in the digital space.
He said digital technology has transformed the traditional ways of doing business and importantly it has changed the nature of crime, presenting new challenges and opportunities for law enforcement agencies around the world.
“This platform is a key component of our Digital Development Initiative. Through this initiative, we aim to provide our officers with modern technology tools and digital solutions that will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of police operations and enhance the delivery of police service to the public.
“The platform will be the central hub of information where the public will access news and updates, public safety tips, crime prevention resources, police contacts and also collaborate and share information with local and international law enforcement partners.
“The launch of the website is amongst many digital solution projects such as the Online Police Clearance process that are being worked on to enhance our capabilities to better serve our people,” Commissioner Manning said.
Mr Manning said the Constabulary will also be entering into Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) with relevant government departments and agencies to to strengthen collaboration and coordination to support the Constabulary’s Digital Development Initiative and enhance national cyber coordination in Papua New Guinea.
“The key activities include implementing digital transformation projects, sharing technical expertise, developing joint training programs, establishing a communication framework, and exploring funding opportunities and partnerships,” Mr Manning concluded.
