POLICE Commissioner Matthew Varley has confirmed that Mono police station, in Shortlands Islands, Western province, is with a new police officer.
He revealed this yesterday during the weekly media conference.
Varley said the new police officer was sent to Mono on July 26 to replace the former officer.
He said on the same night upon his arrival other police officers including the new police officer were involved in community talks with elders and chiefs to reconcile on some sensitive matters the community is facing through the process of understanding what went wrong in the persons’ situations.
“With that the community relationship between Police and leaders in Mono is strong.
“Hence I want to thank the chiefs and leaders in Mono for patients and understanding whilst we resolve this problem.”
He said the new officer is there and is committed to his new task.
“I asked the community to support him and to work with us as we continue to keep that community safe.”
