THE Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) has received financial assistance from the Northern Negros Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce (NFCCC) and Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI).

The assistance in the form of gas coupons worth P10,000 was received by BCPO Director Police Colonel Manuel Placido from chamber representative Crispin Chua at the BCPO Headquarters Thursday, April 8, 2021.

These gas coupons were then turned over to Police Lieutenant Rondyl Tapang, chief of the Tactical Motorcycle Riding Units (TMRU).

The TMRU is the primary beneficiary of the gas assistance that aims to help improve the unit’s drive against criminality in the city.

“As BCPO is intensifying its crime prevention campaign, the support from our stakeholders will be of great help in the conduct of more aggressive and sustained police operations,” the BCPO said.

It said this will lessen the opportunity of the motor-riding criminals to perpetrate their crime, adding that the BCPO is implementing heightened security measures within its area of responsibility.

Placido thanked the business sector for the support given to the BCPO.

He assured businessmen of heightened presence and police visibility to deter criminals as well as proactive police strategy for the safety of the community.
