TACLOBAN City has its new police station building, with the inauguration of Police Station 2 in Barangay Abucay on April 10.
Eastern Visayas Police Director Dionardo Carlos led the inauguration, blessing and turnover ceremony of the standard type “B/C” Philippine National Police (PNP) building.
Carlos said they will continue to construct new police station buildings under the PNP Peace and Order Agenda for Transformation and Upholding of the Rule of Law or PNP P.A.T.R.O.L PLAN 2030 as long as the local government will also help in acquiring a lot for its building.
“The construction of this standard type ‘B/C’ PNP building for the City Government of Tacloban is a solid representation of the government’s desire to provide the communities with adequate, safe and community-friendly PNP buildings and facilities. This is in line with the
objectives of the Integrated Transformation Program, P.A.T.R.O.L Plan 2030,” said Carlos.
The building, which costs P4.9 million, has a total land area of 466 square meters and a floor area of 288 square meters.
Meanwhile, Carlos called on the remaining 22 local government units in Eastern Visayas to donate a land as their counterpart for the construction of police building.
“Of the 146 police stations, 102 police stations are already occupying the new standard type building, 32 others are still under construction, and 22 remaining units are still using the old standard type building or without the standard type PNP building,” he said. (SunStar Philippines)
