City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin De Ocampo has called on the people to help the police in the maintenance of peace and order and not to be passive with what is happening in their community.

De Ocampo said the people have now easy means (cellphone) to communicate and send information to the police regarding the presence of lawless persons in their community or the commission of a crime in their neighborhood.

“They (people) can send information through direct text messaging,” said the police chief.
De Ocampo said he has received an information that a lawless group is victimizing business people in the east and west coasts through extortion, death threats and psychological  harrassment.
He said that his office is still validating this information.

He explained that an information is not valid if people will not  file a complain against any extortionist or criminal.

De Ocampo assured that they will withhold the names and identities of people who provide to the police information on criminals and lawless persons.

One informant disclosed that his friend who owns a hardware store in the west coast has received an extortion letter from a lawless person demanding P 15,000.

He said his friend did not file a complain or blotter it with the police because he is afraid.
De Ocampo explained that the police can not  fight criminalities without the help of the people and the entire community..

“We are doing our utmost best to solve criminalities and arrest the perpetrators We have sworn duties to protect the people and the community even as we sacrifice our lives,” he said. — Allen Abastillas
