Serapio heads directorate for integrated police operations in ARMM, Regions IX annd XII

Koronadal City (25 November) -- In a move to further strengthen and intensify government's campaign to eliminate criminal and lawless activities in Mindanao, the Phillipiine National Police (PNP) headquarters has created the Directorate for Integrated Police Operations (DIPO).

PC/Supt. Felizardo Serapio, Jr. has been named to head the newly created office which covers the police regional offices in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM), Regions IX and XII.

PNP-ARMM Deputy Regional Director for Administration PS/Supt. Faisal Umpa revealed that the DIPO would ensure more efficient and effective coordination, supervision and control of police operations in said areas.

Aside from police operations, the Directorate for Integrated Police Operations would likewise be involved in matters pertaining to law enforcement, counter-insurgency and disaster management, Umpa said.

Umpa said, this new development would have significant impact to PNP's continuous drive against lawlessness particularly in the campaign against loose firearms.

He noted that the campaign against loose firearms in the ARMM particularly in the island provinces of Sulu, Tawi-Tawi and Basilan is gaining grounds.

Through police checkpoints, the official said, more than 70 assorted firearms have been confiscated to this date. (pbc/RICC) [top]
