Guv bares directives for the new PNP Director

SAN JOSE, Antique (PIA) -- Newly-installed police provincial director, Colonel Rogelio L. Abran, Jr., told to give priority to crime prevention and anti-illegal drugs campaign among other concerns.

Following the installation of Abran, Governor Rhodora J. Cadiao expressed optimism that the Antique police force will continue to demonstrate the highest standard of service and uphold the principles of integrity, accountability, and fairness.

She also conveyed confidence in the appointment of the Antiqueño PNP director which she envisions to contribute to the continued progress and security of the province.

As she welcomes the new Acting PNP Director, Cadiao also lauded the former PNP Provincial Director Colonel Alexander Mariano for leading the Antique police force with dedication and commitment.

She noted that it was during the term of Mariano that Antique registered the lowest crime rate in Region 6.

In a press conference, Cadiao urged the Antique PNP to work for the declaration of the province to be drug-free.

The governor pinned her hopes on the administration of Abran that the long-dreamed declaration of a drug-free province will come to reality.

The governor also instructed the PNP to look into the reported illegal activities, particularly dynamite fishing, in some parts of Antique which according to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resource caused damage to coral reefs/ocean floor.

She also mentioned other unlawful activities like illegal cutting of trees in the mountains, instructing the new police chief  to be  also vigilant in such act.

Cadiao also committed the full support of the Provincial Government to the leadership of Abran with the provision of 

resources so they could fully-dispense their functions to serve and protect the province and its people.

Through the mobilization of the Provincial Peace and Order and Public Safety Office, the Antique PNP received an initial nine units of body cameras to be used by the PNP during their operations.

It was turned over during the welcome ceremony here at the Evelio B. Javier Freedom Park on May 22. (AGP/PSM/PIA Antique)
