TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur, Jan. 10 (PIA) -– The new Police Provincial Director of Surigao del Sur has paid a courtesy call to Gov. Johnny Pimentel at the Capitol on Monday.
Pimentel welcomed P/SSupt. Arthur Sanchez, who came in full force with his staff at the Police Provincial Office (PPO).
The governor instructed Sanchez, who assumed post on January 6, to focus on two important matters: to give priority to the province’s campaign against illegal drugs through “JYes Kontra Droga” and; to double the intelligence effort to solve the “highway robbery” problem that, accordingly, already occurred thrice at Bgy. Hinayhayan, Cagwait linking “local boys”might be behind the crime.
Pimentel stressed, he expects Sanchez to live up to his expectation like what his predecessor, P/SSupt. Julito Diray, did during his more than two-year stint. (Radyo Ng Bayan-Tandag/PIA-Surigao del Norte)
