Gingoog City — Provincial Vice Governor Jose Mari Pelaez has pledged more support to the local police as he delivered a message during the short program in the turn over ceremony of a computer set to the police on Wednesday at the Gingoog Police office here.
Pelaez, who is also the chairman of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan’s committee on peace and order, military, and police matters, expressed concern on police offices that have no capital outlay.
“Akong na notice ang kapulisan walay capital outlay mao ning akong nahunahunaan nga mapangetaan ug paagi maka suporta gyud sa kapulisan,” said Pelaez
The vice governor said police units in the province would find it difficult to function without proper equipment.
Police Supt. Ariel Philip Pontillas, chief of Gingoog Police office, said on his report to Pelaez that since February this year, they have arrested a total of 148 wanted persons.
He thanked Pelaez for visiting and for the computer set.
