Oro gov't seeks involvement of tanod, security guards in peace and order drive

Cagayan de Oro City (5 September) -- THE city government is seeking the involvement of the various stakeholders in the community to strengthen efforts along the maintenance of peace and order in Cagayan de Oro.

City Mayor Constantino G. Jaraula disclosed that he is planning to reactivate the barangay tanod (village police) to help the law enforcers in protecting the residents in the barangays against lawless elements.

Mayor Jaraula said that aside from helping the policemen in ensuring public safety, the barangay tanod can also be tapped along traffic management in their respective barangays, especially at the school zone.

The city mayor added that he is also setting up a meeting with the various security agencies in the city to be able to come up with a unified approach with the local police force in the fight against criminality.

Mayor Jaraula is optimistic that with the support from the barangay tanod and the security agencies along the safety and protection of the people here, Cagayan de Oro can attract more investors to do business in the city.

"Our investment climate here is 50 percent dependent on peace and order because the first thing that investors would look for in a place is their safety in doing business," Mayor Jaraula pointed out.

Mayor Jaraula said that for years, Cagayan de Oro has experienced tremendous economic growth mainly because it has maintained its position as the most peaceful city in Mindanao.

Early this week, Mayor Jaraula held a command conference with the officials of the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office to discuss vital concerns that will have an impact in improving the efficiency of the local police force in their fight against criminality.

During the conference, Mayor Jaraula approved the purchase of additional handheld radios, typewriters and computers, as well as additional gasoline allocation for the mobile police operations.

Mayor Jaraula vowed to do his best to support the initiatives that will be undertaken by the COCPO if only to ensure the safety and protection of the people and visitors in Cagayan de Oro. (Cagayan de Oro City IO/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net) [top]
