Police visibility bolstered

recognition of newly assigned policemenThe Taguig local government has recently welcomed the arrival of nearly a hundred new police officers in the city, reinforcing its advocacy to promote peace and order.

Mayor Lani Cayetano expressed gratitude for the additional law enforcers, as she assured the constituents that the 97 new policemen will improve the police visibility in the city.

Mayor Lani said they would be distributed to the 28 barangays of the city.

“With this improvement in our security force, our constituents and even the city’s stakeholders will feel more confident, safer, and secure inside or outside their premises,” she said.

Taguig City Chief of Police Senior Superintendent Arthur Felix Asis, for his part, said the additional policemen would help in addressing the low police-population ratio in the city which is currently at one is to 2,700, whereas the ideal is one is to 500.

“We recognize the problem of the insufficient manpower in our security force. Working together with the local government, we are maximizing the resources available to ensure that our constituents will feel safe and secure,” the chief of police said.

“With the additional personnel, we will prioritize the distribution to those barangays with less police force,” he added.

Meanwhile, Mayor Lani feels confident that “these men and women in uniform will make a good impact in the city’s security force” thus giving the barangays a chance to maximize their workforce and efforts for safety.

“Our goal is to be a premier city. To accomplish it, we should improve our security force in all aspects,” the local chief executive said. ###

Taguig, may 97 bagong pulis

Malugod na tinanggap ng lokal na pamahalaan ng Taguig ang halos sandaang bagong pulis na tutulong sa pangangalaga ng kapayapaan at kaayusan sa lungsod.

Nagpapasalamat si Mayor Lani Cayetano sa pagkakaroon ng mga karagdagang opisyal na magpapatupad ng batas sa lungsod kasabay nang pagtiyak nito sa mga mamamayan na mapabubuti nito ang police visibility sa Taguig.

Ang mga bagong pulis ay ikakalat sa 28 barangay ng lungsod.

”Sa pagpapabuti ng ating security force sa Taguig, mas magiging tiwala ang mga mamamayan sa kanilang seguridad, sa loob o labas ng kanilang tahanan,” ayon kay Mayor Lani.

Ayon kay Taguig City Chief of Police Senior Superintendent Arthur Felix Asis, ang mga karagdagang pulis ay  makabubuti para sa mababang police-population ratio sa lungsod kung saan sa kasalukuyan ay may isang pulis sa 2,700 katao. Ang nararapat na ratio ay isang pulis sa bawat 500 katao.

 “Batid namin ang problema sa kakulangan ng pulis sa ating lungsod. Sa pakikipagtulungan ng ating lokal na pamahalaan, aming tinitiyak  na mararamdaman ng mga mamamayan na sila ay ligtas,” ayon sa Chief of Police.

Dagdag pa nito, uunahing ipadala ang mga bagong pulis sa mga barangay na mas nangangailangan.

Samantala, nagtitiwala si Mayor Lani na mararamdaman ang epekto sa hanay ng kapulisan sa pagkakaroon ng mga bagong pulis. Dahil dito, ang mga barangay ay maitutuon ang kanilang atensyon sa iba pang mga bagay lalo na sa kaligtasan ng komunidad.

“Ang aming pangunahing layunin ay ang maging isang Premier City. Upang makamit ito, kinakailangang mapaunlad ang seguridad ng ating lungsod sa lahat ng aspekto,” ayon sa punong ehekutibo ng lungsod. ###
