MANILA — Personnel from the Davao City Police Office’s Revitalized-Pulis sa Barangay proved they can serve the public beyond providing security in small communities.
These police officers, led by Police Lieutenant Helen Tabada, provided a carwash shop to members of the Sibulan Habal-Habal Driver’s Association (SIHADA) in Barangay Sibulan in Toril District, which aims to help them in their livelihood and earn additional income for them to support their families.
Aside from that, a water reservoir was turned over by the cops to the Bagobawa ethnic group in Barangay Catigan. Around 200 families will now have a clean source of water because of this project.
Further, a 250-meter pathway was also given to members of the Sitio New Lawaon Vegetables Farmers Association in Barangay Sibulan, which will help the transport and delivery of goods in the area. A pathway was also built for the Sitio Mariras Farmers Association.
These successful turnovers were part of the Quick Impact Projects of the police officers, through the assistance of various stakeholders and other groups.
Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar praised and expressed gratitude to the police officers who were part of making these projects a success.
“Humahanga ako sa inisyatibong ito ng ating mga kapulisan sa Davao City. Ito ay nagpapatunay lamang na mas maraming pulis ang may puso, malasakit at dedikasyon sa kanilang sinumpaang tungkulin na paglingkuran ang sambayanang Pilipino,” PGen Eleazar said.
“Hinihikayat ko ang ating kapulisan na tularan ang mga ganitong gawain upang ipakita sa ating mga kababayan na ang pagtulong at maayos at tamang serbisyo ang mukha ng PNP at hindi ang masasamang gawain ng iilan nating tiwaling kasamahan,” he added. (AI/MTVN)
