SAN FERNANDO CITY -- Central Luzon Police Regional Office III officer-in-charge Ronald Santos has lauded those who supported the all-out projects crucial to sustain and improve the peace and order situation in the region.

Santos, who was interviewed shortly after the recent meeting of the Regional Advisory Council at the Camp Olivas here, said the private groups and local officials whom he dubbed partners are providing the necessary equipment and support.

Santos said Governor Pineda has helped a lot since she assumed her post in 2010. You know very well the funds we have are not enough to buy all the things we need and for the budget needed by our people.

Romero turned over eight brand new Hewlett-Packard personal computers and a copier to Santos, head of the 12,000-strong regional police command. The chairman of the RII Builders Inc. was accompanied by anti-crime crusader and Salapungan, Angeles City Barangay Captain Rey Malig during the meeting and the turn-over of the computers.

Santos said the computers are needed, especially to beef up our peace and order monitoring in Pampanga and the six other provinces.

During the meeting, Santos also thanked governor Pineda for supporting the needs of the Pampanga police and assisting police personnel and officers who are set to undergo seminars and other education programs related to improving their knowledge and skills.

Governor Pineda and the provincial government led by Vice-Governor Dennis Pineda allotted millions of pesos of funds to help the police in improving their operations and boost the morale of the more than 1,000 members of the Pampanga Police Office. (JP/Contributed)
