A warning has been issued to schools in the National Capital District not to start fights and get involved in unlawful activities.
NCD metropolitan commander Supt Andy Bawa said students would be made aware of the consequences of breaking the law if they got themselves involved in school fights, group binge-drinking in public places and other illegal activities such as the use of marijuana.
Bawa said the community policing unit, under its respective police station commanders, has programmes that carry out awareness in schools and would be highlighting these issues during their visits to schools in Nation Capital District.
It follows a recent school fight between students of Bavaroko Primary School and Coronation Primary School in Port Moresby.
NCD community juvenile police officer Constable Anna Wills said the fight started last Tuesday and was reignited on Thursday.
Wills said no major injuries were reported. A boy from Bavaroko suffered minor bruises.
She hoped the cause of the fight would be established in a meeting with both schools.
“We will be meeting with students, teachers and parents of Coronation Primary School on Monday, we have already talked to Bavaroko Primary School.”
