PIA Press Release

New PNP XII chief urges policemen to strictly abide by existing laws

Koronadal City (24 November) -- Newly installed PNP XII Regional Director PC/Supt. Fidel Cimatu has called on his men in the field to respect human rights and the peace negotiations in the process of performing their mandates.

Cimatu, who took over the helm of the PNP XII last November 15 immediately conducted inspection and assessment of the prevailing situation in his area of responsibility.

During his visit to the Cotabato City Police Office, the new regional director met with City police director PS/Supt. Willie Dangane and his men and staff to personally see and hear the issues and concerns confronting police operations.

Cimatu noted the problem of lack of enough policemen to handle police operations in Cotabato City.

The city police office needs more than 500 policemen, instead of its present force of only 200 to handle and maintain peace and order in the city, Cimatu said.

The official admits that the problem cannot be resolved overnight and recommends the need to have the "force multipliers" as an alternative.

Based on statistics, Cimatu said, in Region XII the ratio between the police force and the population is 1 policeman for every 1,200 population while the normal is 1 policeman for every 500 population.

Cimatu said, he was impressed to have personally witnessed the intensified campaign of the city police office against all forms of lawlessness as shown by the number of confiscated loose firearms, illegal video karera machines among others.

This validates the accomplishment reports submitted by the city police office despite the problem of lack of policemen which is common to almost all police stations, Cimatu said.

He urged the members of the city police office to continue to intensify and strengthen its relentless campaign against criminalities to ensure peace and order in the city with the reminder to strictly follow and abide by existing laws and regulations. (pbc/RICC) [top]
