“Dahil sa suporta ng provincial government, mas nagagampanan namin ang aming tungkulin at nasisigurado natin ang peace and order sa ating lalawigan.”
This was stressed by Pangasinan Provincial Police Office (PPO) Provincial Director Redrico A. Maranan during the 4th edition of the Pangasinan in Action (Lingguhang Talakayan sa Kapitolyo) on July 29 at the Ceremonial Hall of the Urduja House.
The Pangasinan Philippine National Police (PNP) expressed their gratitude to the provincial government led by Governor Amado I. Espino III for the constant support to maintain peace and order in Pangasinan
“Gusto kong magpasalamat sa ating Governor sa kanyang suporta dahil malaki ang naitutulong ng ating provincial government sa monthly operation expenses ng ating provincial command,” said Police Col. Maranan.
P/Col Maranan and Pangasinan Drug Abuse Council (PADAC) Secretariat Carlos Resurreccion served as guest resource persons during the media forum.
The PPO Provincial Chief was accompanied by Deputy Provincial Director for Operations Jay Baybayan and PPO Chief of Operations Charlie Umayan.
“Alam naman natin na very limited ang resources ng PNP at napakalaki ng lalawigan ng Pangasinan with almost 3.2-million population,” P/Col. Maranan added as he commended the unceasing assistance of the provincial government to all programs and undertaklings of the Pangasinan PNP.
The police director stated that the teamwork of the provincial government and PNP assures not only preservation of peace and order, but also quick police response in times of emergency.
As such, reports of the Pangasinan PNP showed a 24 percent decrease on index crimes as compared to the same period last year (January to July).
In his parting message, Maranan also vowed Pangasinan PNP’s sustained dedication in pursuit of harmony and implementation of law while upholding the vision and mission of the province.
“Kami ay nangangako, dahil sa suporta na binibigay ni Governor Espino, ay mas lalo naming pagbubutihin ang aming tungkulin at pagpapatupad ng batas upang manatiling maayos an gating lalawigan,” PD Maranan said.
