PNP banking on community help


The Philippine National Police is banking on the support of the community in the campaign against all forms of crimes in Negros Occidental.

“Maintaining public peace and order is nearly impossible without the community’s support,” said Col. Romeo Baleros, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, who spearheaded yesterday the National Crime Prevention Week’s activity at the Negros Occidental Multi-Purpose Gym in Bacolod City, with Napolcom regional director Joseph Celis and Col. Henry Biñas, acting director of the Bacolod City Police Office.

Baleros also reiterated the marching order of Brig. Gen. Rene Pamuspusan, regional police director of Western Visayas, for all police personnel, that includes sustained reformation, internal cleansing through mentoring and developing leaders, as well as pro-active and smart policing.

Baleros, stressing the need to know by heart the laws they will be upholding, said, “this starts with our commitment to safeguard our own lives and protect the lives of others”, as well as involving the community.

Also with the help from our counterpart agencies in the government, and the support of the community, National Police Commission and our local government units, a future with minimal crime rate is possible, he added.

Celis, meanwhile, cited the community as the most important pillar in the crime prevention campaign, adding that the PNP gets information from them.*
