CITY OF MALOLOS— Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado commended the Bulacan Police Provincial Office (BPPO) and other government peacekeeping forces for continuously maintaining an atmosphere of peace and order in the province wherein the crime rate drops at about 18.43 percent.

Gov. Alvarado, chairman of the Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC), said that the unrelenting drive against criminality and maintenance of peace and order has resulted into significant arrests of lawless elements and neutralization of notorious crime syndicates operating in Bulacan, Metro Manila and some parts of Central and Southern Luzon.

The governor also announced during the PPOC meeting at the Hiyas Pavillion that from 3,608 recorded crime incidents in 2010, the number of crimes in Bulacan decreased to 2,943.

“Government functionality in whatever capacity must always be pure above suspicion and beyond reproach. To reorder society, let us start the change in us. Only then will peace and order reign supreme,” added Gov. Alvarado.

P/Supt. Wendy Rosario, officer-in-charge of BPPO reported that they had arrested 122 wanted persons, issued a total of 3,695 citation tickets against erring motorcycle riders, neutralized hold-uppers, and intensified campaign against illegal gambling, drugs, loose firearms and carnapping.

“We will continue to enhance our personnel and unit capability especially in the anti crime and internal security operations and further strengthen our community relations in order to be more effective in addressing peace and security concerns in the province,” Rosario added.

Also present in the council meeting are Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando, vice chairman of PPOC; BM Enrique Viudez III, chairman of Committee on Peace and Order; Col. Hilario Vicente Lagnada, Battalion commander of 56 IB Infantry, Philippine Army; Col. Felicito Trinidad, commander 702nd Brigade, 71D, Philippine Army; Myra Moral, provincial director of DILG; municipal mayors; Bulacan policemen; and other officials from different government agencies. ###
