Lae Chamber of Commerce prioritises law and order
The Lae Chamber of Commerce is committed to addressing law and order problems and will endeavor to support the Law and Justice agencies, says it's President Allan Mclay (pictured right).
Speaking to a group of Law and Justice Sector staff attending a media training in Lae, Mr Mclay said the Chamber has already supported the sector, especially the Police.
"Our relationship with the Police has been pretty good so far. Our members are also keen to support and I can say, we have a healthy working relationship, "said Mr Mclay.
He said the Chamber has also provided hand-held radios, install telephone lines and pay the phone bills.
He said the Metropolitan Commander's office has also been open to the Chamber for assistance.
"I think our success has been the result of open communication and realizing where our strengths and weaknesses are.
"That has enabled us to come up with a realistic strategy to address the law and order challenges," said Mr Mclay.
He further added that the Chamber has also set up a crime hot line where the public can report crime from their areas, without fears of reprisals.
Acting Morobe Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Joseph Noah acknowledged the Chamber's support.
Mr Noah said Chamber has been prompt to the needs of the sector and this was demonstrated by its excellent leadership.
"We have been fortunate to have a strong leadership who know how to deal with the sector. They know what our weakness and strengths are and that helps them to prioritise their assistance to us," said Mr Noah.
He added that he hoped that the Lae community can take advantage of this partnership and contribute towards addressing law and order issues.
