The proposed new Zamboanga City Police Office (ZCPO) building at the former Zambagora area (at the back of City Hall) will break ground today, June 30 with Mayor Beng Climaco and top police and military officials leading the ceremony.

The project is a priority project of the Climaco administration and is a monumental proof of the City Government’s support to the security sector.

A total of P29.947 million has been allocated in the Supplemental Budget for 2014 for the new police office building.

Mayor Climaco has vowed to fully continuously support and assist the security sector in line with her priority thrust on Security, Health and Education (SHE). She ensures the increasing allocation to assist the police and military and other law enforcement agencies.

The proposed ZCPO building will be a two-storey edifice with an area of 1,260 square meters. It will be constructed in the over 1,000 square meter area, formerly occupied by the Zamboanga Barter Goods and Retailers Association (ZAMBAGORA) located at the back of City Hall.

The project will be undertaken by the Everlast Construction Company and will be completed in a period of 200 calendar days.

Among those invited in today’s groundbreaking ceremony are police officials led by Regional Police Director PCSupt. Edgar Basbas and City Police Director PSSupt. Angelito Casimiro, Western Mindanao Command Chief LGen. Rustico Guerrero, Naval Forces Western Mindanao Commandant Rear Admiral Reynaldo Yoma, Task Force Zamboanga Commander Col. Andrelino Colina and other officials from other military and law enforcement agencies, members of the City Council and other city officials. — Sheila Covarrubias
