The Department of National Defense (DND) has approved the request of House Deputy Speaker and District I Representative Beng Climaco to augment fuel allocation to soldiers engaged in patrol activities in a bid to strengthen the city’s security and order.

The request for additional fuel allocation will be taken from the Petroleum, Oils and Lubricants (POL) accounts of the DND budget.

Climaco made the request for POL for additional fuel allocation to respond to the need of helping the city’s law enforcers do their regular patrolling in their areas of jurisdiction both in land and on sea.

“We have requested through DND to add fuel allocation to our soldiers doing their patrol around the city, particularly the Task Force Zamboanga. And I am grateful that they have acted on our request”, the lady solon said.

With additional fuel allocation, patrol hours of soldiers could be longer and done more frequently, she said.

She added that this development could help boost the security, order and peace keeping efforts of the authorities.

Last week, Climaco turned over radio units to the police, Task Force Zamboanga and various Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Units (CAFGUs) also in line with the effort to heighten and put in place the security and emergency response system of the city’s first district.

“We have already distributed communication units to barangay officials for their security response and there are still 6 barangays that have not received yet their units, pending the installation of another repeater that will accommodate these barangays”, Climaco said as she distributed the radio facilities to police chiefs including TFZ and CAFGU representatives.

She pointed out that distribution of the radio communication facilities to law enforcers is being done to complement all efforts in district 1 in a bid to keep the peace and order in their respective areas of jurisdiction.  — Marvin Segura
