Australia has supported Royal PNG Constabulary (RPNGC) Family Sexual Violence Units with much needed training. The Australian High Commission in PNG released the following statement.
On this the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture, we recognise the sensitive and complex work that goes into fighting torture and supporting survivors.
Australia supports the Royal PNG Constabulary (RPNGC) Family Sexual Violence Units (FSVU) which plays a critical role assisting survivors of FSV and Sorcery Accusation Related Violence (SARV).
Thirty-eight officers from 28 FSVUs across PNG participated in Australian-funded training to effectively to help strengthened police responses to FSV cases.
Officers gained valuable insights on a wide range of topics, including survivor-centered approaches, FSVU standard operating procedures, evidence collection and interview techniques, cybercrime related offences and responding to the needs of persons with disability. Timely and professional support can help reduce the trauma for survivors.
Armed with knowledge and new strategies, these dedicated officers are now better equipped to help protect survivors and victims in our communities.
