WESTERN province premier Wayne Maepioh has praised the RSIPF Police Commissioner Matthew Varley for his visit to the province.
Maepioh said it was an honour to welcome the incumbent commissioner to the shores of the province.
More so, he stresses that the people of the province are indebted to the police for the fast and decisive action taken in addressing the recent scare involving 29 men from Bougainville who had crossed border last week.
“We thank you for the back up support rendered to our police officers here particularly with the availability of the two patrol boats, the PRT, other officers, the logistics.”
Maepioh also acknowledges the provincial police commander of Western province, Matthias Lenialu, for the remarkable policing done throughout the province since his appointment on the job.
“As the Premier of this Province, I am extremely satisfied with the level of security rendered and have a lot of confidence in our police force for the safety and security of our people, our communities and for the people of our nation Solomon Island.”
