With the objective to maintain the peace and order in the city, the local police under Sr. Supt. Edwin De Ocampo will implement additional sector stations and policemen on the street.

De Ocampo disclosed that with the present five sector stations located in barangays under the central police station, nine more sectors with police personnel and with respective chiefs will be put up within the areas of responsibility of the city police office.

Aside from the additional number of sector stations, beat policemen and cops on motorcycles will be deployed in the different strategic areas.

De Ocampo said he will issue complete transceiver radio sets and firearms to all sector stations and beat cops so that they will easily transmit messages in case of eventualities and they can respond to emergency calls quickly.

De Ocampo said that beat cops will be “buddy-buddy system” and they will be assigned in the different areas especially in crowded areas.

The police director said the police will utilize all the equipment from the city government including transceiver radios and firearms that were given to them earlier.

With the new additional sector stations and policemen in the field, De Ocampo is confident that the local police force under him can attain improvement in the city’s peace and order. — Dan Toribio Jr.
