NV Police reports to CMP
The Nueva Vizcaya Provincial Police, headed by PSSupt. Leumar Abugan, paid the traditional New Year’s Call to Governor Carlos M. Padilla on January 22 at the Ammungan Guesthouse.
The New Year’s Call is an age old tradition in the uniformed services that allows subordinate leaders to manifest courtesy and loyalty to the commander. The PNP adopts this tradition to serve as an inspiration for its officers in aiming the organization’s goals and objectives for the new year.
Giving the courtesy call with Abugan were the uniformed staff of the Provincial Police Office and the 15 Chiefs of Police of the 15 towns in the province.
Governor Padilla expressed his gratitude to the PNP and felt proud that the peace and order situation in the province is basically peaceful.
“The low rate of crime in the province is a good climate for investment and I thank you that with your support and strict implementation of the enhanced police operations, our province is so peaceful,” Padilla said.
Although there were some encounters with the New People’s Army recently, the rebels were not able to fully establish in the province due to the coordination and cooperation of the police force and the local government units.
The crime rate in the province had a substantial decrease in 2017, compared to the recorded crime in 2016. #bg
