Naval, Biliran (22 January) – Four of the eight towns in the province of Biliran who have no service vehicles for a long time finally received their respective Philippine National Police (PNP) service cars.

In a simple turn-over ceremony held at the Biliran Police Provincial Office (BPPO) Grounds yesterday, the municipal police stations of Almeria, Cabucgayan, Caibiran and Culaba were each given a Toyota Hilux PNP service vehicle.

The mock key symbolizing the formal turn-over of the vehicles to the recipient municipal police stations was handed by Police Senior Superintendent Leonardo M. Cesneros, the newly-installed Provincial Director of BPPO to Mayor Arnelito S. Garing of Cabucgayan, Mayor Enrico B. Uyvico of Culaba, Police Inspector Ma. Bella Rentuaya, Chief of Almeria Police Station representing Mayor Rolando E. Ty and Engr. Teofilo Gervacio, the Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator in Caibiran who represented Mayor Floresca S. Delante.

P/Sr. Supt Cesneros in his message after the turn-over ceremony informed that the police cars are part of the facilities and communication development component of the Integrated Transformation Program of the PNP.

“The service vehicles will provide police stations capability, effectiveness and efficiency in doing their respective mandate, functions and duties and there is no reason why they could not dispense their duties”, P/Sr. Supt. Cesneros frankly said.

The Chief of BPPO who turned 45 years old on January 16, 2009 also asked the support of the local chief executives and their representatives to help in the maintenance of the service vehicles and in the provision of diesel fuels.

For his part, Mayor Garing said that to have a PNP service vehicle in his town before his term ends in 2010 is a dream come true. He thanked the PNP and promised to support the program of the agency under his administration.

On the other hand, Mayor Uyvico stressed that the vehicle will uplift in maintaining peace and order and will help much in going after illegal activities in his town.

Likewise, Engr. Gervacio who represented Mayor Delante of Caibiran emphasized that the vehicle will greatly help in reducing crime rate in Caibiran town while P/Insp. Rentuaya who received the police car in behalf of Mayor Ty of Almeria stressed that the vehicle will be a big help in implementing the PNP programs in the town where she serves as chief of police.

Provincial Administrator Avelino Hernandez, who stood in behalf of Governor Rogelio J. Espina during the turn-over ceremony assured the BPPO chief, the two local chief executives present and the representatives of Mayor Delante and Mayor Ty that the provincial government will support the PNP through the provision of diesel fuels to the four new service vehicles and even told the upcoming rice allowance that will be given to the BPPO.
