Police in midwest Cebu unite in campaign vs criminality

February 17,2017

Policemen in Cebu’s third district have bonded together to come up with a unified campaign against criminality.

Station commanders assigned in Tuburan, Barili, Aloguinsan, Pinamungajan, Balamban and Asturias towns and Toledo City have agreed during a conference on Friday afternoon to help each other in the arrest of criminals and ensure the immediate resolution of cases.

Chief Insp. Roland Aliser of the Tuburan police station said they also agreed during their conference to cooperate in preventing the commission of murder, homicide carnapping, motor napping, rape, robbery and theft and the occurrence of vehicular accidents that may result to physical injuries and possible loss of lives.

Aliser said that illegal gambling “swertres” is especially rampant in the countryside.

President Rodrigo Duterte earlier told the Philippine National Police (PNP) to already cease from involving in the government’s anti-drugs campaign and leave this for the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) to do.

During their conference held in Barili town, Aliser said that the seven station commanders assigned in the third district of Cebu agreed to extend a “helping hand” to their neighbors under the “Sikop Tuyok Distrito” campaign of the Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO).

But since the PNP has been told to cease from its anti-drugs operation, Aliser said third district policemen will now focus on the conduct of anti-drugs symposium in schools and barangays.

They will also be helping PDEA gathering information on the presence of drug personalities in their respective areas and enforce arrest on illegal drugs transactions that they would chance upon, he added
