The newly formed West Papua Police are expected to recruit more Papuans as policemen, as part of empowerment program for Papuans.

'€œWe appreciate the establishment of the West Papua Police, as required by the provincial administration and local residents for the sake of law enforcement in West Papua. We hope the West Papua Police will recruit locals as police,'€ said West Papuan People'€™s Assembly (MRP) deputy head Anike Sabami in Manokwari on Friday.

The establishment of the West Papua Police was based on an Empowerment and State Apparatus ministerial decree dated Aug. 27, 2014, later followed up with the appointment of the first West Papua Police chief Brig. Gen. Paulus Waterpauw, who was born in Fakfak, West Papua.

The West Papua Police, with headquarters in the Manokwari gubernatorial office building in Manokwari, West Papua, oversee nine regency police forces.
