Delivering a stern message in a friendly way
"POLICE will come on you like wind, rain and fire!" This was the blatant message to the public in East Sepik prior to the festive period. The aim was to achieve a safe and peaceful festive season celebrations. But the medium through which the message was delivered was somewhat friendly. Police used of a large billboard fitted on the back of truck carrying the Royal PNG Constabulary crest with the message "with the people for the people". Children chased after the vehicle as it visited all communities in Wewak town in pursuit of candies and cheese pops. The style of such police Public Relation during Christmas and New Year period in the province was widely commended and already the public and business communities alike were throwing their support behind police work in the province.
