Equipping police to better deal with FSV cases

Femili PNG’s CEO Daisy Plana presents the equipment to the Tent City Police Shift Supervisor Graham Boramand and China Town Police Commander Gordon Matafimo

In March 2017, China Town and Tent City Police Stations in Lae received a computer and printer each from Femili PNG to assist with cases relating to family and sexual violence (FSV).

Femili PNG understands that there are many challenges that service providers are faced with when addressing family and sexual violence and has therefore taken up the initiative to provide support where needs are identified.

In making this donation, Femili PNG supports the Lae police administration’s initiative to decentralise FSV services, and assign FSV work to police in sub-stations.

China Town Police station Commander Gordon Matafimo, expressed his appreciation to Femili PNG upon receiving the donation. He said it would be set up in the station to help with FSV cases.

Femili PNG previously donated a computer set with a printer, filing cabinets, chairs, a work table and other office accessories to the 3 Mile Police Station in October 2016.

All three of these police stations in the Lae Metropolitan Command will continue to work towards addressing family and sexual violence in partnership with Femili PNG.
