Cebu Police Office tops performance on illegal drugs, gambling in C. Visayas
CEBU CITY, May 31 (PIA) -- The Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) tops the performance output in operational accomplishments among all police offices in Central Visayas in the continuing battle on illegal drugs, gambling, and illegal firearms.
Police Senior Inspector Ramoncelio Sawan of the Regional Operations and Plans Division of the Police Regional Office (PRO) 7 said the CPPO ranked first last April in positive operational performance among all seven police offices in the region.
âWe are looking at seven police offices and rating them according to their operational outputs on three thrusts to determine which police office is at par with their work and which offices need guidance for improvement,â bared Sawan.
Sawan said the seven police offices that are being ranked according to their operational performances are the CPPO, Negros Oriental Police Office (NOPPO), Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO), Siquijor Provincial Police Office (SPPO), Cebu City Police Office (CCPO), Mandaue City Police Office (MCPO), and the Lapulapu City Police Office (LLCPO).
The three major thrusts where operational performances are based are âKontra Bogaâ (loose firearms), illegal drugs, and illegal gambling.
In Kontra Boga, Sawan said the CPPO was able to confiscate 42 firearms based on its positive operations followed by the CCPO with 26 confiscated or seized firearms and thirdly, the NOPPO with 22 firearms. The ranking is based on the number of loose firearms confiscated, seized or recovered from its operations last month alone.
The CPPO also conducted 36 positive operations on the continuing fight against illegal drugs last month followed by the CCPO with 34 operations and 17 operations for the BPPO.
On the campaign against illegal gambling, the CPPO held 27 positive operations in April followed by the CCPO with 17 and 14 for the BPPO.
The police official however, said the PRO 7 is also considering the characteristics of our other police offices. âWe cannot compare the CPPO to the SPPO so we are also taking this into consideration why other police offices lag behind in performance output,â said Sawan. (FCR-PIA 7, Cebu)
