AUKI police station has applauded the donation of a PA system recently received from the RSIPF management in Honiara.
The PA system includes speakers, microphones and laptop.
PPC Timothy Apaesi said the gift is much appreciated as it will help them in their work especially when carrying out crime prevention awareness.
He said the equipment will be manned by the Crime Prevention Strategy Committee to help them in educational talks or awareness on community policing or crime prevention in the province.
Apaesi commended the assistance saying it is a milestone for his staff.
“Like in the past when my officers went out to do community talks, they speak by their natural voice.
“But for now through the use of the system the message they’ll put out will louder for every hoping that people will get them clearly,” he said.
He thanked the RSIPF especially the Police Commissioner’s office for seeing the need to purchase the equipment for Auki Police.
Meanwhile, Apaesi said his office expects to roll out with a crime prevention strategy training to the four regions of Malaita province beginning next month.
He said the training will be conducted by his staff who will train selected community members on crime prevention strategy and community policing.
Apaesi said the training will begin with the central region of Malaita next month.
He said after the central region, they will move north at the end of June.
Apaesi said from July up to September they will conduct the training within the two remaining regions of east and south Malaita.
