KOROR (Palau Horizon, March 15) - Two police officers from Palau, Jonnie Ngeluk and Dolyn Tell, have been deployed to Dili, East Timor, as part of the United Nations police force, or UNPOL.

Ngeluk is serving as the executive assistant to the senior police adviser.

She is responsible for monitoring and reporting the capacity development programs of border patrol units.

These programs include conducting several workshops and seminars.

Ngeluk and the UNPOL senior police adviser attend all meetings with East Timor ministries, development partners and donors.

In addition to her own duties, she has designed a project to deal with domestic violence cases, which are the most common crimes in East Timor.

Around 70 percent of the crimes there involve domestic violence.

Tell, as logistic officer, conducts an assessment of the local police’s logistical needs so that possible donations from the United Nations can be made in an appropriate way.

As a member of the "liquidation team," Tell has to patch up logistical matters before the end of their mission.

Ngeluk and Tell have shown professionalism, devotion to duty and a great sense of responsibility, Palau officials said.

They have been outstanding representatives of their country and an invaluable asset to the UNPOL.
