New Bicol police chief to stick to 10-point agendaby Ed de Leon
LEGAZPI CITY, Jan 18 (PIA) -- Newly installed police regional director for Bicol chief Supt. Jose Arne M. Delos Santos said that he will aggressively pursue the 10-point agenda of police national chief Nicanor A. Bartolome during his almost only one year and four months tour of duty as Bicol regional police chief.
During his inaugural speech during last Monday's turn-over ceremonies, presided over by Bartolome, Delos Santos stressed that he will be guided by the 10-point agenda of the PNP chief in the pursuit of the efforts of PRO 5 towards realization of making our communities safe to live, work, and do business in.
He pointed out that the 10-point agenda call for: 1) sustaining the Integrated Transformation Program and Performance Governance System; 2) periodic performance audit; 3) enhancement and specialization of skills; 4) one police per barangay supervisor; 5) promotion of Rights-Based Policing; 6) accounting of Wanted Persons and Service of warrants; 7) enhancement of Procurement, Financial, and Logistics Management Systems; 8) continues build-up of police equipage; 9) strengthening the Reward and Disciplinary System; and 10) enhancement of Moral and Welfare Projects.
The new police regional director said that he will ensure the accountability of all levels of his command and encourage a culture of integrity, excellence, and commitment as pillars of his leadership and as a way of life.
Delos Santos further stressed that the efforts towards genuine peace and order can and will only be achieved with the active support of a well-informed, responsible, and highly-mobilized community, without which no amount of talent, skills, and resources dedicated to law enforcement will ever succeed. “Thus we harness community support in our law enforcement efforts by earning the people’s trust, faith, and confidence,” he added.
He said that he will also work for an active partnership with local chief executives, heads of national and government agencies, leaders of non-government organizations, people’s organizations, the business sectors, the academe, church, and the media ensure solidarity and unity of efforts as "we push forward the frontiers of genuine community-based policing.”
Meanwhile, police director General Nicanor Bartolome urged the men and women of police regional office 5 to support their new director Chief Supt Arne Delos Santos and said that additional resources will be made available towards enhancing their skills and provide additional equipage.
Bartolome disclosed that the PNP will now go technical with the E-Blotter, E-Warrant, and E-Rogue.
He explained that E-Blotter will now be computerized while the E-warrant and E-Rogue will improve the data base to be accessible to all police units so that they could be updated on the crimes being committed anywhere. They would also be updated on outstanding warrants of arrest and photos of wanted will be placed in the E-Rogues for easy access to all police agencies.(MAL/EDL-PIA5)
