THE Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (Nocppo) launched its official newsletter “Ang Pahayag” during the flag raising ceremony held at the headquarters’ parade ground in Bacolod City on Monday, December 9.
This is the first newsletter of Nocppo since its founding 74 years ago.
The unveiling was spearheaded by Easter Anne Doza of the Philippine Information Agency, who was a guest of honor during the ceremony, and Nocppo Director Police Colonel Romeo Baleros.
The newsletter, an initiative of Baleros, aims to effectively convey public safety announcements as well as news-worthy accomplishments of the office.
Baleros has given importance to good media relations, active police-community partnership and effective public information.
In fact, the Nocppo Press Corps was organized, during his time, in June 2019.
The initiative is also through the efforts of then Nocppo Chief of Police Community Affairs Development Section Police Lieutenant Colonel Lea Rose Peña and Chief of Public Information Office Police Major Edison Garcia.
They also tapped the expertise of Nanette Guadalquiver of the Philippine News Agency as consultant.
The eight-page newsletter also contains other activities sponsored by Nocppo from July to September 2019. Succeeding issues shall be published regularly every quarter.
