Cambay urges citizens to report vandals to police-A A +A
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
CITY Police Director Jesus Cambay said citizens may report incidents of crime and vandalism to the nearest police precinct and police stations nearest the incident will be dispatched.
He said this to the Burnham Park Fencing Committee and CJ Neiderstadt, head of the Anti-Graffiti Task Force recently.
Cambay assured the members of the BPFC vandals of the fence panels will be properly documented and reported if evidence proves who the perpetrators are.
He noted children in conflict with the law will be turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) once caught. Neiderstadt, on the other hand, said once the DSWD turns over the names of the vandals, the Task Force on Anti-Graffiti could be the enforcing their parents to community service to strengthen the implementing guidelines of the Anti-Graffiti Ordinance passed by the City Council in 2008.
Cambay said the city police was reorganized to make it more efficient in responding to the needs of the community.
He requested citizens join the police department in their three–fold principles: unified in purpose; solidarity in values; and teamwork.
He said if all the people and the police force followed the three principles, the city would be a peaceful and safe place for visitors and residents alike.
Joining him in the concerns of the Burnham Park were PO1 Arnold Caguioa and Tourism Police Officer Inspector Virgilio Hidalgo.
