POLICE REGIONAL Office (PRO) 6 Director Josephus Angan said that about P31-million was released by the Philippine National Police for the repair of the various provincial headquarters, police stations and patrol cars in Western Visayas damaged by supertyphoon Yolanda last year.


Angan said this in a consultative meeting with governors, mayors and other local officials in Western Visayas last Nov. 12 for the status of the Department of the Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) Recovery Assistance on Yolanda (RAY) program.


“Through the strong support of Sec. Mar (Roxas), the PNP released some P31-million to Region VI,” he said.

 

During the meeting, Roxas also announced that PNP will be buying about 2,000 units of patrol cars in the next couple of years for various municipal police stations without patrol service and those with dilapidated patrol units.


“All the 1,490 towns will get a new patrol car,” stressed Roxas who also facilitated the provision of Department of Energy (DOE) generator sets at the Capiz Police Provincial Office and local police stations days after the typhoon.


Along with Secretaries Dinky Soliman of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Voltaite Gazmin of the Department of National Defense and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council Executive Director Alexander Pama, Roxas was in the city last Nov. 12 and 13 for the RAY concerns and additional assistance.


Aside from RAY, the national government has also the Comprehensive Rehabilitation and Recovery Program (CRRP) to ensure the build back better policy of the government after Yolanda. (Alex Lumaque)
