NOCPPO gets 276 new cops


The visibility operations of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office is expected to get a boost, following the arrival and deployment of 276 neophyte police personnel in the province.

Police Inspector Charmae De Paz, spokesperson of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, yesterday said the 276 police personnel will render patrol duty and police visibility in 14 city and municipal police stations in the province.

The Police Regional Office 6 also dispatched 198 neophyte police officers to the Bacolod City Police Office last week for a similar job.

Senior Supt. Rodolfo Castil, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, said that the additional police officers will also beef up the security and help maintain the peace and order in Negros Occidental.

A total of 476 police personnel have been added to Negros Occidental last week by the PRO 6.

“Through the strategic mantra of PRO6 ‘We Perform as We Transform,’ our Regional Director (Chief Supt. Cesar Hawthorne Binag) wants every citizen of Western Visayas to feel safe at all times with the presence of PNP personnel deployed in the roads and other areas of convergence,” Castil said.

Senior Inspector Armilyn Vargas, BCPO spokesperson, earlier said that the police personnel from Police Regional Office 6 will be an added force to the 10 police stations in Bacolod.

The 476 new police officers are slated to undergo the Basic Internal Security Operation Course, after their duty in Negros Occidental.*GPB
