WITH the Negros Island Region now under the Police Regional Office (PRO) 7, authorities see the need to intensify its security to prevent what happened in Guihulngan City.
“Our regional director deemed it wise to step up our operations there. Previously, PRO 7 did not have any problem with CPP-NPA (Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army) but they are active there,” said Senior Supt. Jonathan Cabal, head of the Regional Intelligence Division 7.
Communist rebels ambushed six policemen in Guihulngan last July 21. (JOB)
