THE United Nations Children’s Education Fund (Unicef) wants to help strengthen the work and operations of juvenile officers nationwide, its country representative Dr Claudes Kamenga says.
“Access to justice for children and child protection is central to Unicef,” he said.
He spoke at the presentation of 20 laptops to the Justice and Attorney-General’s Department at the launch of the Juvenile Rehabilitation and Reintegration Policy in Port Moresby on Monday.
Department secretary Dr Eric Kwa said the work of juvenile officers often went unreported because they lacked the resources to report.
“We are always struggling for funds to support our programmes,” he said.
“We have issues with reporting our programmes and what we do.
“The laptops are being delivered at an opportune time to provide timely reports to the public.”
Village Courts and Land Mediation acting director Joe Saferius noted that juvenile officers ventured to most rural parts of the country but lacked the capacity to report their work and operations.
“The laptops will help provide timely service delivery,” he said.
