The police in Papua New Guinea are pushing for officers to end the practice of work on the side to make sure they focus on their policing duties.
Already a senior office has been charged with corruption and accused of receiving a double salary - one from the police force and another from another government agency -- since January 2008.
A police spokesman, Dominic Kakas, says PNG suffers from a shortage of officers, but recruit drives are underway:
"Just last Friday we had 192 recruits coming out of Bomana police college and we're set to slowly increase the number of policmen. We've got a government directive to follow. They want us to to beef up to about ten thousand by 2014."
