Chiefs in Isabel province have raised concern over the long delay of the Provincial Police Commander position in the province.
One of the village chiefs George Basil said policing in Isabel is poor, reports forwarded from the communities to Buala police fall on deaf ears; thus the Isabel police needs a leader that is active and recognises issues affecting communities.
Basil calls on the Police Commissioner to quickly deal with the issue and send the right person to the position.
Meanwhile Police Commissioner Mostyn Mangau assured the Isabel people that once formalities are finalised, police will send the person to head Isabel police.
He said currently an acting PPC is there and he is mandated to take control of the office according to the Police Act.
He said they are still waiting on the Police and Prison Service for endorsement and as soon as that process is done, then arrangements will be done for the new PPC.
