PIA Press Release

Police, business sector join efforts to preserve peace and order in Kalinga

TABUK CITY, Kalinga (15 October) -- The business sector and the police here agreed to jointly help each other preserve peace and order in the province particularly in this city.

During a business forum with Police OIC Director Florante Camuyot held recently at the Davidson Hotel and Restaurant, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) Kalinga Chapter agreed to contribute 200 liters of gas this last quarter of the year for Tabuk City Police operations. This will augment the provincial and city government's regular aid to the police.

The police assented with the business group to restore the abandoned highway police detachments to help deter the commission of hold up incidents. It can be noted that when Luyukan detachment along the Tabuk- Roxas road and Spring detachment along the Tabuk-Tuguegarao road, the perennial hold-up sites, were abandoned, hold-ups incident happened and perpetrators get away easily.

The business sector also urged the police to increase their visibility in public to deter crime while the private sector assigned themselves to arouse public vigilance. Police were also asked to upgrade and develop a communication system to act on request for police assistance, crime incident reports and criminal sightings. On the process, the police will strengthen its intelligence network in the barangays level.

In a larger scale of criminality which is believed by the business sector as the cause why investors and tourists are afraid to come is the proliferation of loose firearms. The confiscation of loose forearms should also be pursued to stop tribal conflicts and unsolved killings.

PCCI members required the police for a mandatory drug test to all apprehended suspects. With the newly established crime laboratory including drug testing, the problem on drug dependents will be checked, the business sector pointed out.

To establish closer coordination with the police, the military and other law enforcement agencies, the business group formed a private sector committee to act as liaison with law enforcers.

The media group was assigned to help in the conduct of information dissemination through the broadcast, print and inter-personal communication to educate people on good citizenship. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
