The Misamis Oriental Provincial Police Office topped the best performing agency among all other police offices in Northern Mindanao region.
Senior Insp. Corinne Mae Espigoy, PNP-MisOr public information officer, said the agency topped the overall performance assessment of the provincial police command in terms of police community relations, investigations, among others from March 1 to July 31.
“This includes our performance in the campaign against the proliferation of illegal drugs in the communities where we were able to partner with the PDEA-10 (Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency-10) that declared 25 of our barangays in Misamis Oriental are now drug-free,” Espigoy said.
Upon evaluation by the PNP-10, found PNP-MisOr as having drug-freed villages and with established rehabilitation centers to see to it that Oplan Double Barrel Reloaded responders and arrested drug personalities are reformed and given a chance to survive their daily routines in decent ways, Espigoy said.
She added that the PNP-MisOr was able to conduct 250 legitimate police operations in the province including buy-bust operations, serving of search warrants and warrants of arrests, checkpoints, saturation drives, police responses and the implementation of the rehabilitation programs.
Espigoy said they will, under the administration of Senior Supt. Rolando Destura in partnership with the Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental, continue to enforce the law with high legitimacy in their operations. (pio misor)
