Expats from defence, security and policing spheres already gain senior roles in Papua New Guinea's private security scene while the Australian government is increasingly providing more assistance to PNG's police.

In a Thursday meeting at a hotel, Kulunga accused senior Port Moresby police leaders of closing their eyes to the criminality of their subordinates, according to Radio New Zealand.

He reportedly warned them that foreigners would take their places if there were no improvements.

The meeting reportedly came after junior officers were allegedly involved in a series of crime including robberies, murder and forcing suspects to "perform indecent acts".
