A medical doctor says the PNG Police recruitment and training process should be reviewed so that the standard of policing can improve in the country. Dr. James Naipao says "Police Recruit coming for training should complete a minimum of grade 12 and have good character reference, good community reference from a community leader, behavior assessment, and with no police records. Should do an entry test. Training should be for 2 years. Pass outs should receive a diploma that covers all areas of policing.
Police Cadet Training should comprise the above, and should include either of these; university entries qualified candidates, top diploma candidates from the non-cadet training, and first/2nd/3rd/4th year university students who opted out of study, and/or those that graduated with university and tertiary institution diplomas and degrees. Cadet training should be a 4-year program. This cadet officer training should be a degree program where 2 years is general policing studies, 3rd year is administrative, corporate and police policy study, and the 4th year program is designed for a candidate to specialize in a field in policing. And again, cadet training should be a degree program.
Those that don't qualify, reject them. Those that don't pass the entry test, do not recruit them. And, those that don't pass through the stages of training, release them.
Those final pass outs or graduates would better service the constabulary and the people, and for the better interest of Papua New Guinea."
