Laoag City police joins Asenso Laoageño barangay caravan

LAOAG CITY, Ilocos Norte (PIA) – The City Police Station of Laoag City, Ilocos Norte is joining the weekly Asenso Laoageño barangay caravan led by the city government to bring some of their services closer to the residents.


Police Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Baltazar, police chief of the Laoag City police station said they included police clearance issuance, police help desk, and distribution of information and educational materials for safety and protection in their booth during the caravan.


“Na-recognize natin na magandang salihan ng kapulisan ng siyudad ang Asenso Laoageño caravan kasi marami itong barangays na napupuntahan, kaya maraming mga residente na nakikinabang dito. Magandang avenue ito para makapagbigay din kami ng aming libreng serbisyo, mag-distribute ng mga educational pamphlets, at para makapag-report ang mga residente saamin ng mga illegal activities sa mga barangays nila na normally hindi napupuntahan ng mga kapulisan,” Baltazar explained.


The Asenso Laoageño barangay caravan is a program initiated by the City Government of Laoag which aims to bring the services of the different departments of the city closer to the residents, especially those who are from the barangays far from the Laoag City Hall.


Some departments include the City Treasury, Business Center, Agriculure Office, Veterinary Office, Communications and Media Office, Health Office, a legal help desk, and now a police assistance desk.


The caravan is scheduled every Thursday; for the month of June the caravan is scheduled in the dates of 2, 9, 16, 22, and 29.


The barangays to be visited is yet to be announced by the City Government.


Aside from government services, Asenso Laoageño barangay caravan also serves as a distribution program to give free agriculture and fishery equipment and inputs, wheelchairs and other walking assistance equipment, and food packs to the residents. (JCR/MJTAB/EJFG, PIA Ilocos Norte)
