THE Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) has set into motion an integrated patrol system to revitalize police presence even in villages.

Operating 24 hours and seven days a week, the ICPO conducted a total of 243 checkpoint operations from January to August 2011.

The operations netted 30 arrested persons from the municipalities and 34 firearms have been recovered.


Aside from checkpoints, the integrated patrol system include mobile patrol, bike patrol, foot patrol, masco or motorized police operations, sita, bakal and kapkap operations.

Superintendent Uldarico Garbanzos, ICPO chief of operations, has already presented to city mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog the integrated plan to deter any criminal activities with major focus on daily checkpoints.

ICPO chief Senior Superintendent Marietto Valerio said the city is generally peaceful with no organized crime group to harass city residents.

He said these crime groups are mostly based in Metro Manila, and is just in Iloilo to have a rest and vacation.

The integrated police plan and said recent crime incidents are isolated cases, Valerio said, adding that the city crime rate is going down. (Lydia C. Pendon)
