Police anticipate positive outcome for 2015 Pacific Games security

Chairman of the 2015 Pacific Games Police Security Operations acting Deputy Commissioner Administration Jim Andrews is confident that Papua New Guinea will deliver a safe, secure and incident free 2015 Pacific Games.
"I know we are just only three days into the 2015 Games but the genuine support, commitment and cooperation of our people have been incredible,"  Andrews said.
He thanked all members of the organizing committee for their support and cooperation and the government for its support in funding.
"I want to thank commander of the security operations for the 2015 Games Chief Superintendent David Manning and committee members for their support and tireless efforts."
Andrews said planning began in early 2013.
"Despite many challenges, we have managed to peacefully welcome the opening of the games and are now going into the first three days of the games.
"It's our responsibility as police officers to provide security for the games so that participants and supporters from other sister countries can fully enjoy the true spirit of the 2015 Pacific Games without encountering any problems.
"I also want to extend my appreciation to the venue commanders and members of the Royal PNG Constabulary the PNG Defence Force, Correctional Service and other state agencies for their dedication and commitment to come together to achieve this early positive result.
"I am confident of positive outcomes in as far as security and safety for our visitors is concerned," Andrews said.
