Gulf police gets new vehicle worth K200,000

Malalaua police in Kerema district, Gulf province received a new police vehicle worth K200,000 from Kerema Open MP Thomas Opa last week at Malalaua government station.

Provincial police commander, chief inspector Jeffery Lemb said the police vehicle has come through the hard work of the local policemen and women, the tireless efforts in recent continuous drug busts and mass arrests of criminals in the province.

The vehicle will replace the current 10-seater that used to cover Malalaua area starting from Sepoe, Iokea to Malalaua and Ipakota.

“I have been highlighting the issue on shortage of resources especially vehicles to effectively do our job and the good member has seen our strife and helped us with a 10 seater Toyota Landcruiser as an Independence Day present to Gulf Police.

“On behalf of Gulf Police and the people, I wish to sincerely thank Mr Opa for the critical and timely assistance.

This will help us fight crime in the province,” Chief Inspt Lemb said.

He said the province still need three dinghies to patrol the sea in Kerema district, Taure and Lakekamu.

There is also a need to establish police posts along the highway.
