Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office Director, Police Colonel Romy Palgue, together with the chiefs of police of the towns and cities of the province, pay a traditional New Year’s call on Governor Bong Lacson, at the Provincial Capitol, today.
The governor expressed his trust and confidence to the Negros Occidental Police and said that the sound coordination and relations between the Police force, LGUs and the public is imperative not just for the promotion of law, order and public safety, but also for the effective delivery of public services.
Gov. Lacson said that when the pandemic happened, both the powerful and the less powerful ones were just as disconcerted and all were faced with an unprecedented challenge which encompassed both health and non-health implications; and the government had to act at once, and together with the health workers, the PNP was urgently called and the PNP heeded the call bravely.
“Please know that your selfless service as frontliners, which at times were rendered beyond the limits of endurance is deeply admired and appreciated. And for our men and women in uniform whom we lost in this war against the COVID-19 virus, may we honor their sacrifice with our continued courage and service up to the day that humanity will be free again,” said Gov. Lacson.“As we start this new year still in the midst of this pandemic, I would like to emphasize the need for police visibility in all our towns and cities here in the province as it creates trust and connection to our people especially in this time when our people need more reassurance,” he added.
Also present in the activity were Negros Occ. Provincial Administrator, Atty. Rayfrando Diaz, Police Lieutenant Colonel Wilfredo Abordo, NOCPPO Deputy Provincial Director for Administration, and Police Lieutenant Colonel Leonardo Borromeo, Deputy Provincial Director for Operation.
