Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo gets an award from the PNP for its anti-crime initiatives. Present during the awarding were Councilor Joe Kenneth Arbas, Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Sec. Michael Lloyd L. Dino, RD Sinas and Mayor Remollo (middle), Commissioner Rogelio T. Casurao of the National Police Commission, Councilor Alan Gel Cordova and DILG Cluster Head Farah Diba Gentuya.

The Philippine National Police Regional Office7 (PRO7) awarded Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo for his unconditional and sustained support to the anti-crime programs and initiatives to preserve the peace in the city as well as Central Visayas region.

The awarding is part of the week-long celebration of the 24th National Crime Prevention Week with the theme “Mamamayan, Sama-Samang Makialam upang Krimen at Korapsyon ay Hadlangan.”

PRO7 Regional Director Police Chief Supt. Debold Sinas led the presentation of awards to local government units (LGUs), individuals and police personnel for their exemplary dedication to duty and efficient performance in crime prevention in a simple ceremony held at PRO 7 Headquarters Camp Sergio Osmeña, Cebu City.

In Negros Oriental, Dumaguete City is the only LGU granted the award, and Tagbilaran City is also given a plaque of recognition in the region.

Dumaguete City formally donated six units of 250cc brand new motorcycles worth P 1.4 million to boost the mobility of the local police.

This is the latest investment of the city government to support the campaign against illegal drugs, shootings and other criminal activities.

The City PNP previously received brand new military type drones, bullet proof vests and body cameras to improve its intelligence gathering capability and maximize the safety of the law enforcers.
