Former PNP Chief lauds police visibility in Baguio

The Baguio City Police Office (BCPO) is grateful to former Philippine National Police (PNP) officer-in-charge Lt. Gen. Vicente Danao, Jr.  for recognizing the implementation of police visibility in the city which should be emulated by all police units in the different parts of the country to deter the occurrence of crimes that pose a serious threat to life and limb.

BCPO City Director Police Col. Glen Lonogan stated that another significant accomplishment of the local police force is that it is the first city police office to apply and successfully pass the last stage of the Performance Government System (PGS) which is the institutionalization stage. At present, the BCPO is only awaiting the conferment of the same by the PNP national headquarters.

The PGS is a holistic and collaborative framework for designing and executing road maps to the long-term reforms in different government agencies. It was geared towards raising the standards of governance to the satisfaction of the general public.

Further, he added that the BCPO was the ability of the BCPO city mobile force company to be in the top 3 Best City Mobile Force Company in the national level.

He claimed that a team from the national headquarters was in the city last week for the conduct of the mandated validation with the hope that the BCPO City Mobile Force Company will be able to bag the award as the best in the country.

The BCPO official pointed out that sharing the aforesaid accomplishments is not to brag about what the local police force had done but it is to share to the people the outcome or impact of their trust and confidence to the officers and members of Baguio’s finest.

He emphasized that the support of the people to the local police force is indicated by the high performance of the police personnel. He said that it is the people who made them perform well and with that, the public must continue working with the BCPO for the sustained law and order in the city. – Dexter A. See
