Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson welcomed Philippine National Police chief, General Debold Sinas, who attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office transient quarters, as part of his command visit to the province, yesterday.
Lacson said the presence of the PNP chief will definitely inspire and boost the confidence and morale of the troops in Negros Occidental, given the difficulty and complexity of their tasks, a press release from the Capitol said.
NOCPPO director, Colonel Romy Palgue, with other police officers and staff, Sangguniang Panlalawigan Member Agustin Ernesto Bascon, and other guests joined the governor in welcoming Sinas.
The governor also said that the construction of the NOCPPO transient quarter is a sound and practical way of supporting the needs and enhancing the capacities of the police officers in these difficult times.
The transient quarter is located in Camp Alfredo Montelibano Sr. in Bacolod City.
Lacson thanked Sinas for his visit, and urged everyone to continue to rally behind the PNP. “Our present circumstances have demonstrated quite clearly our need for utmost unity and cooperation, if we are to overcome the manifold challenges we are confronted with right now,” Lacson said.*
