PNP chief hails PRO 08 for relentless pursuit of criminal elements

By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan City (June 11) -- The Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Jesus Verzosa hailed his men in Eastern Visayas led by Police Region 8 Director, Chief Superintendent Rey Lanada for the relentless pursuit of criminal elements especially in Gandara and Calbayog.

Verzosa in his message at the municipal wharf of Zumarraga island town on Wednesday, after the successful ?Legay Run? cited the successful operations of the team in dismantling private armed groups especially in Samar province.

"You are one of the best performers nationwide," Verzosa addressed his men at dusk with the breathtaking Zumarraga sunset in the background.

Some 400 PNP elements coming from all over Eastern Visayas swarmed Zumarraga shores for the ?Legacy Run?.

Verzosa also talked of his tranformation mission that he claims has gained significant results.

He mentioned his men?s efforts to continuously arrest suspected private armed groups in Gandara and Calbayog.

"That goes to show na nagtratrabaho kayo, kung mapayapa ang Region 8," stressed the Chief PNP.

Verzosa was in high spirits when he arrived in the isand town of Zumarraga as he received news that Noynoy Aquino has been proclaimed President that day and that Aquino mentioned that he will retain Verzosa as Chief PNP.

As he praised his men for their regular duties, he also gave special mention to their committed service during the elections.

"Let us do it again next election, the citizens are appreciative of what we are doing," he added.

"We have gained the status that people depend on us for credible elections," Verzosa noted.

He ordered his men to be where the action is, not to crowd in urban areas, "go where you are needed."

As his final order the general has this to say:

"Go against lawless elements, go against illegal firearms, go against those who violate the law!" (PIA-Samar) [top]
