District 2  Congressman Erbie A. Fabian reiterated his call for improved peace and order condition in the city, being confident better things are ahead for Zamboanga once the situation stabilizes.

Fabian expressed high hopes that the return of City Police Director Sr. Supt. Edwin de Ocampo will set the tone for improved performance by the local police saying de Ocampo has the full trust and confidence of the PNP high command and his men as well as the backing of the local government officials.

The solon’s call came while new PNP chief Alan Purisima paid his first visit to the city after he assumed command of the country’s police force yesterday.

Fabian added it is imperative the city achieve stable peace and order conditions so it can concentrate building on the gains achieved the past few years and move the city forward to progress and development.

The solon has made peace and order the cornerstone of his 10-point agenda as he seeks to continue on serving the city beyond 2013 as he prepares to step down from a successful 9 year stint in Congress where he served consecutive terms as the House Representative for District 2.

He rallied support of the people to contribute in working for better peace and order conditions citing the job of attaining it is not the sole responsibility of the police but of everyone.

A concerted effort by the community working with law enforcement authorities will make its realization faster while embedding a sense of responsibility on everyone to keep the city always safe from criminal elements.

He also lauded recent moves by the local police to bolster its anti-crime drive

In the city including the creation of a task force to battle organized crime syndicates in the city.

“If we work together, we can achieve better results and there is nobody better in doing this than we as a people ourselves as after all this is our place, our families are here, and all that matters to us are in the city and so let’s get our acts together and make it work this time around,” Fabian said.
“Zamboanga city is not a place for criminals and crime syndicates, we have always been gracious to our visitors and guests here but we don’t want trouble makers coming over and wreak havoc on our peaceful city,” the solon added.
