Police service in districts forgotten by Dili command
A lack of resources and infrastructure within the PNTL was made clear to Fundasaun Mahein (FM) last week, when three FM staff members went to Maliana to conduct research. FM had the chance to interview the PNTL district commander and the local Border Patrol Unit (BPU) commander as well as various officers.
It was highlighted to FM that the PNTL command in Dili as well as the current government do not have a clear understanding of the needs that are prevalent in the districts. District commanders have drafted numerous plans detailing their requirements to improve policing and security in their respective areas. However, FM learnt that the PNTL command in Dili very often disregards these plans and instead provides them with equipment not deemed a priority by district commanders.
To illustrate this, the PNTL district commander of Maliana recently received a number of new cars and anti-riot gear aimed at improving security during the election period. Although thankful of these new vehicles and equipment, the PNTL district commander argued that these are unnecessary for his district and what is needed urgently is a security wall to be built around their headquarters to better protect their offices and equipment.

The BPU also suffer from a significant lack of resources. BPU officers must regularly undertake their duties in poor conditions.

Very limited transportation is offered to those officers controlling our border and these suffer from limited communication with the outside world. Whereas the PNTL in Maliana are now in possession of a large number of cars, their counterparts at the BPU desperately require new ones and its promised Unimog, a multi-purpose four wheel drive truck, is still stationed in Dili.
Worse, when BPU officers are unfortunate enough to fall sick while on patrol, they are forced to provide their own transportation to seek medical attention. If a colleague accompanies the sick officer to hospital, this results in the border post being unattended. To add insult to injury, BPU officers complained that they do not receive per diems on weekends making it very difficult for them to feed themselves then. Furthermore, FM discovered that in Memo suco, the BPU is not provided with electricity and instead sources its power from the kind generosity of the local community.
FM laments the poor conditions in which our nation’s security officers have to work in the districts. How are we to expect our police force to provide effective security when they are not provided with the equipment and basic support needed?
FM recommends to the PNTL command in Dili as well as the government to be more attentive to the needs of our police force in the districts and this should start by reviewing those plans drafted by district police commanders more carefully.
