DavNor capitol orients new security personnel

by Mera Grace E. Apuya/PIO-DavNor

TAGUM CITY, Davao del Norte, Jan. 02 (PIA) -- Some 50 security officers and guards have started in New Year’s day to take turns in providing security and safety around the provincial capitol premises and in all other provincial offices.

The security personnel from the Mati Investigation Security Agency Services (MINSAS) have been deployed in different posts at the provincial capitol starting January 01.

OIC-Provincial Administrator Norma Lumain said MINSAS is the new security service provider that took over the provision of security services in the Provincial Government.

An orientation was conducted Dec. 28 at the Conference Hall, Capitol, Tagum City which discussed not only the guidelines for effective delivery of security services but also the basic policies ought to be observed in dealing with visitors, employees and the transacting public.

Lumain told the new security personnel to also familiarize with the government officials.

Provincial Human Resource Management Officer Monica Salido introduced Republic Act No. 9485 or the Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007 to the personnel, emphasizing the significance of said law to their job being engaged in the operations of a government organization.

In an interview, security chief operations officer Rolly Cortez expressed appreciation to the provincial government for being “transparent.”

He said that the provincial officials were clear as to what security measures to implement which he acknowledged to be helpful to them.

“It is a good thing that we know we have the same security policies so all we have to do is improve it,” he said.

Vice Governor Victorio Suaybaguio Jr, also acting as OIC-Governor, challenged the personnel to “be dedicated servants” reminding them of their main purpose to protect lives and properties.

MINSAS is also the security service provider of several government agencies such as Commission on Audit, PAG-IBIG, PhilHealth, and the Davao International Airport.

Hiring the security agency is in line with the “public-private partnership” thrust of the provincial government under its P.E.O.P.L.E. agenda, said Provincial General Services Officer Samson Sanchez.

Sanchez provided most of the encouraged and discouraged practices of security personnel to serve as guideposts for MINSAS. (PIO-DavNor/Mera Grace E. Apuya)
