Commissioner’s Message

Greetings, and welcome to the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary (RPNGC) website.

As the Commissioner of the RPNGC, I am proud to lead an organization that is dedicated to serving and protecting the people of Papua New Guinea. Our mission is to ensure that our communities are safe and secure, and that everyone is able to live their lives with dignity and peace of mind.

At the RPNGC, we are committed to using all of our resources, including our training, technology, and community outreach programs, to achieve this goal. We believe that working together with the people of Papua New Guinea is the key to making our communities safer and more secure.

In order to achieve this goal, we have developed a comprehensive approach to law enforcement and crime prevention that focuses on community policing and partnerships with other organizations. Our goal is to empower the people of Papua New Guinea to take an active role in keeping their communities safe and secure.

Whether you are a member of the public seeking information on how to stay safe, a member of the media looking to report on our work, or a potential recruit interested in joining the RPNGC, I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about our organization and the services we provide.

Thank you for your interest in the RPNGC. I am confident that together, we can make a difference in the lives of the people of Papua New Guinea.
