CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -– A top official of the Pampanga Police Provincial Office (PPPO) recently revealed that Candaba town is among the peaceful communities in the province.
Pampanga Police Director R’win Pagkalinawan said he is happy with the recent achievement of Candaba on peace and order.
“There is no more report on the existence of armed groups here. Mula ng maging Mayor si Jerry Pelayo ay nawala na rin ang mga NPA, naging tahimik na po itong bayan ninyo,” Pagkalinawan said in a meeting with chiefs of police in various municipalities where the current peace and order situation of the province was assessed.
Candaba and San Luis towns were named as among the peaceful communities in Pampanga.
Henry Flores, Candaba chief of police, said the recognition should be attributed on the partnership of the local police and barangay officials.
Flores stated that barangay officials played a vital role particularly in giving prior information needed in preventing criminal activities.
David Arcega, San Luis police chief, earlier told Sun.Star Pampanga that criminalities in the locality have decreased for the past two years which is the result of a continuous dialogues and coordination with barangay officials. (Herbert P. Mapiles)
