Western Highlands PPC John Sagom and contractor looks on at the demolished office complex at Mt Hagen Police Station.  

An old colonial building at the Mt Hagen Police Station in the Western Highlands provincial capital was demolished on Friday.  

The contractor, Peek Builders Ltd moved in with their heavy machines to complete the demolition work, to start the work on constructing a new office complex which will continue to house these divisions; logistics, transport, sector response unit, armed robbery squad, motor squad, homicide, and the general offense squad of the Criminal Investigative Division. 

The construction of the new office complex would be built through the assistance of the Australian Federal Police [AFP].

Provincial Police Commander [PPC] Chief Superintendent John Sagom extended his gratitude to the office of the Police Commissioner and his senior executive management for considering Western Highlands for this project through assistance from Australian Policing Partners. 

Meanwhile, the relocation of offices will not hinder law and order work in the province as the main Mt Hagen Police Station will still to the general public.
