Thanks, Peter. Your comments seem to be in line with what I thought would be happening.

I'm sure that these AFP officers are helping the RPNGC in a variety of ways, especially in positive "attitudes", which is what we are on about on PNG Attitude.

The grammar and punctuation of the above article is not exactly as my posted comment on David Connery's article regarding the AFP 'Wok Wantaim' Program, but close enough is good enough.

I would point out that the accompanying photograph features an Australian State Police Force Sergeant, with his RPNGC counterpart, from the previous exercise, a few years back. He is armed and is wearing an RPNGC armband.

The current AFP contingent are not armed and wear a distinctive non RPNGC armband which identifies them as Advisers in the 'Wok Wantaim' Program.

Many of our NCD Constabulary Members have been wearing the new uniform issues consisting of AFP style light blue shirts with shoulder rank boards, name badges and peaked caps. It is generally agreed that the 'new look', in line with the Constabulary's 'modernization' program is acceptable to the general public as more modern looking, but is not likely to last long because of the sub standard, cheap rubbish quality of the new gear.
