New Roxas City PNP Chief vows reforms

By Jose Arsenio Quinzon


ROXAS CITY—The new police chief of this capital city vows to implement ‘iron fist’ and reforms upon the ranks of Roxas City Philippine National Police (PNP) personnel.


On his first day of office, September 9, Officer-in-charge Police Supt. Julio Gustilo Jr, faced the local media here and spoke of his three-point agenda and reforms he plans for the city police.


Gustilo said his priorities are Crime Prevention, Solution, and Suppression.


To prevent crimes, he said he will deploy more personnel in strategic locations and will request the city government to install more closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras along the city proper and require the installation of it in business establishments. He also plans to establish the first Explosive Operatives Division (EOD) of Roxas PNP.


“We will conduct EOD and K9 trainings,” he said.


Gustilo said that in his term, he will also focus on the unsolved cases and arrest the most wanted persons in Roxas City. “We will give justice to them,” he said.


He will also intensify operations and surveillance to arrest big time drug lords and syndicates operating in the city. “We will catch drug big fishes, not just the small ones,” he said.


During the previous months, Roxas PNP had apprehended big time drug operators and drug dens within the city.


For Gustilo, Roxas City is a booming city, that is why, he sees that petty crimes such as hold-up incidents and snatching, illegal gambling and illegal drugs are proliferating. “We will do our best for the people expect our job (sic),” he said.


In 2011, Roxas City was cited as Region Six’s Best City Police Station because of its "outstanding transformation initiatives and performance in police administration and operation in line with PNP's Integrated Transformation Program” during the 110th Police service Anniversary Celebration at Camp Martin Delgado, Fort San Pedro, Iloilo City.


Before his assignment in this city, Gustilo served as the Chief of Police of the towns of Pres. Roxas, and Dumarao in Capiz, and Dueñas, Sara and Barotac Nuevo in Iloilo, and in Boracay; Deputy Provincial Director of Antique, and Guimaras; Intelligence Officer of PNP 6 Regional Office and Iloilo Police Station; Deputy of Aviation Security Group in Iloilo; Deputy Regional Chief of PNP 6; and United Nations Peace Keeper in Timor Leste.


He assumed office after the previous OIC Roxas City Chief Police Supt. Orlando Colisao was relieved of duty for EOD training.


Gustilo reminded his personnel “Gawin ang tama at may gantimpala, gawin niyo ang mali at may paglalagyan ka,” he said.
