PGMO lauds prov’l PNP’s efforts vs COVID-19

MISAMIS ORIENTAL (PIA)–Underscoring the heightened law and order initiatives of the Misamis Oriental Provincial Police Office, the Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental (PGMO) recently recognized its police force represented by Misamis Oriental Provincial Director PCol. Raniel Valones alongside his ranks for their efforts in imposing minimum public health safety protocols and continuous crackdown on illegal activities.

“Kami po ay nagpaigting ng ating intelligence gathering and monitoring sa lahat ng mga bayan upang mapigilan ang ganitong mga gawain at ito rin ay lumalabag sa ating health protocols, sa tulong ng ating intelligence monitoring at sa ating mga BIN (Barangay Information Network) matutukoy natin ang mga ganitong bagay,” shared Valones.

(We have intensified our intelligence gathering and monitoring in all towns to prevent such activities and it also violates our health protocols with the help of our intelligence monitoring and our BINs)

After a successful operation on an illegal cock fighting derby which resulted in the arrest of 32 individuals and 10 cock fighting roosters amounting to P132,000 in Alubijid, Valones said they are intensifying their efforts to not only police illegal gambling but also prevent illegal mass gatherings to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID)-19 contagion in their area of responsibility.

“Ito po ‘yung paglabag sa PD No. 1602 at RA 9287, ‘yung pagsusugal na mga ilegal ‘yan po ay kasong kriminal at naisampa na po natin ‘yan sa piskalya ang kasong paglabag na yan sa mga nabanggit na lumabag,” he added.

(This is the violation of PD No. 1602 and RA 9287 or illegal gambling, which is a criminal case. We have already filed with the fiscal the case of that violation against the aforementioned violators)

Despite facing policing limitations wrought by the pandemic, Governor Yevgeny ‘Bambi’ Emano thanked the provincial police force for its efforts to protect the people and maintain peace and order in the province and vowed stronger ties and support from the PGMO. (VPSB/PIA-10/Misamis Oriental)
