Computer for Lae police

It was a timely boost for Lae-based Task Force police unit who were donated with a new set of computer, including a printer.
The equipment came from local ward councillor Robert Arapiang. Mr Arapiang said the computer was purchased through the Lae Urban Council law and order allocation program. 
He said Ward Four area was neglected because the community had not shown respect by looking after services provided by various agencies.
“The council ward office was dismantled by the community, even the police station was broken into and properties stolen.
“I want those services to return back to the community, so as a result I am purchasing the computer set for the Task Force who are now based at Three Mile,’’ Mr Arapiang said.
He also challenged the Task Force unit to carry out random patrols within the Ward Four area which covered the Miles area along the highway. 
“There are lots of illegal activities taking place within the community and it’s difficult for us, the leaders to stop it.
Consuming, selling of illicit drugs (marijuana), producing of homebrew (steam), it is all happening there right under our nose, but we can’t do anything,” he said.
Officer in Charge Task Force Dominic Livar, when thanking Mr Arapiang, assured that random police patrol would be carryied out within the ward.
“I assure you Cr Arapiang that my men will try their best to assist maintain law and order within your Ward,” he said.
Mr Livar said the donation of the computer was timely for them. He said the computer would assist the policemen to carry out their duties in terms of filing.
Those present to witness the event were Lae City Assistant Director Corporate Services David Eteric, Manager Ward Services Hiob Noah and LCIA police policing chief Simon Ipam.
