31 close protection officers certified
Chief Superintendent (CSP) Kabib Lamu, from the APEC Joint Security Task Force (JSTF), called upon the participants to be vigilant, active, prepared and to perform their duties with pride and dignity when the leaders and delegates arrive on our shores. "Close protection officers are the frontline officers providing close protection to high profile dignitaries. "You are the face of our country.
You have been selected to undergo this training which will equip you with the knowledge not only to be competent and effective but to be good ambassadors for PNG during the APEC meetings," said Lamu.
"I therefore call upon you all for total commitment and dedication in providing the CPP services required during and beyond APEC 2018."
APEC training is ongoing in all the safety and security organisation under the auspices of the JSTF for APEC PNG 2018.
