2011 generally peaceful, North Samar pulis to intensify patrol system in 2012

by Ailene Nalazon-Diaz

CATARMAN, Northern Samar, Jan 12 (PIA) –- "Generally peaceful,” this was the assessment of PNP provincial director Brigido B. Unay of the Northern Samar Police Provincial Office (NSPPO) in appraising the peace and order situation of Northern Samar for year 2011. Police recorded 509 crime incidence which was lower than that of 2010.

This, he disclosed during a one-hour radio interview in “Huruhimangraw sa Panginudto,” a PIA hosted radio program aired over DYSM.

For 2012, Unay said, they will pursue and intensify the Police Integrated Patrol System (PIPS) to further strengthen the crime prevention efforts in the locality.

“The PIPS is an effective strategy in reducing if not eradicating criminality in the area and preventing criminals in executing their lawless activities,” Unay added.

The police will employ four strategies for PIPS: intensify police visibility to stave off street crime operations; recover loose firearms where they will put an end to the proliferation of loose firearms; apprehension of those with warrant of arrest; and strengthen police-community partnership.

One of the best strategies too is in involving the community through the establishment of Barangay Peacekeeping Action Teams (BPATs), a community based support envisioned to help the Philippine National Police (PNP) in peacekeeping operations, Unay explained.

"Although we prioritize these areas, we will not however slow down on anti-drug campaign and apprehending those committing violations against special laws." Unay stressed. (AND/PIA-Northern Samar)
