TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Mayor Darwin Estrañero pledged to the Philippine National Police (PNP) additional support in the future after handing over five (5) vehicles to the Tabuk City Police Station (TCPS) on Monday.
According to Estrañero, the TCPS may expect another five (5) vehicles to be delivered in the near future.
This, he said, will help to solidify the local government’s strong and unwavering support for the PNP- Tabuk’s capability building, which is in line with the implementation of law enforcement programs, the maintenance of peace and order, and the protection of life and property.
“The CLGU fully appreciates the PNP’s critical role in our shared ambitions for development and progress advocacy,” he stated.
The city government is well aware of the PNP- Tabuk’s resource needs, according to the city chief executive, who added that aside from additional vehicles, they can expect a lot for their new office in Laya East, which the PNP will share with the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (CDRRM) and the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), among others.
“The goal is to broaden and expand their capabilities while also improving their level of performance,” the mayor explained.
At the same time, the barangay council of Calanan contributed a parcel of land for a potential sub-station to cover and monitor the barangays along the Chico River line.
The mayor also stated that talks are underway in Barangay Agbannawag for the clearing of a facility constructed within a municipal government site that will be given to the PNP-Tabuk to serve constituents from Barangay Malalao to Barangay Nambaran, as well as Barangay Bulo to Barangay Calaccad.
Estrañero also stated that a budget has been set aside for the construction of a substation in Barangay Agbannawag, which will commence once the negotiations are completed.
“We hope and pray that the cars and lots that will be presented to the PNP will help to convert Tabuk City into a hub for investment, trade and business, education, tourism, industries, and, of course, agricultural produce,” the mayor stated.
