Police personals in the National Capital District who are involved in the APEC operations have been working around the clock to ensure that the general public is abiding by the rules and regulations that are in place during this time of APEC.

According to the NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Perou N’Dranou, the police will be providing security outside of most meetings and APEC precincts.

Supt N’Dranou is pleased with the performance of police officers during this time of APEC. The police officers are putting in more effort than they did in the past international visits in the country.

“As the NCD Commander, here we are seeing a lot of tolerance by the police officers who work more than they usually work. I can sense some responsibility and I am proud at this one moment in our career,” he said.

Meantime, N’Dranou is also grateful that the residents of the city are following certain restrictions that are put in place to ensure that security measures are followed.

This includes the restrictions of certain vehicle routes, littering restrictions and certain rules that are put into place to ensure APEC is delivered successfully not only in terms of security.

“Public support is there and we can sense the public contributing in their part to ensure that the city is clean, they are behaving and I just challenge them to continue on,” said Supt N’Dranou.

The Metropolitan Superintendents’ message of assurance in terms of security, he has urged the residents and those visiting the city in this period of APEC to behave.

He stated that those who fail to comply with these laws will be dealt with accordingly given the capacity the police now have on board to penalise any citizens who decides to break the law, hence he is also urging the general public to avoid breaking the laws that are put in place to ensure a successful delivery of APEC.

These APEC laws put in place have a much higher penalty to penalize those who violate them.
