PRO–COR finalist for 2009 Best PNP office nationwide
by Harley Palangchao

CAMP DANGWA, Benguet – The Cordillera police regional command is one of top three finalists for the prestigious annual search for “Best Police Regional Office” which the office got twice in recent years.

The Best Police Regional Office will be honored by the Philippine National Police general headquarters during the 19th PNP anniversary ceremonies in Camp Crame this month.  

The other two PNP regional commands in the top three contenders are PRO-7 (Cebu) and PRO-11 (Davao). 

Cordillera police information officer, C/Insp. Tessie Sarmiento, said Camp Crame was impressed with the administrative and operational accomplishments of PRO-COR in line with the Integrated Transformation Program of the PNP. 

Sarmiento said that a validation team from Camp Crame headed by police director Luizo Ticman visited Camp Dangwa last Jan. 7 purposely to review anew the records and long list of accomplishments of the command in 2009. 

Just recently, Camp Crame hailed PRO-COR for emerging number one among the 17 PNP regional offices during the first phase of the “LOI Kontra and Bilang Boga” or the gun amnesty program and seizure of loose firearms. During the second phase of the program, the same command emerged number two in the over-all performance nationwide. 

The PNP general headquarters is likewise impressed there were no cases of bank robbery, economic sabotage, and act of terrorism ever to happen in the Cordilleras in 2009. 

The national government also commended the PRO-COR Crisis Management Committee led by C/Supt. Orlando Pestaño for its efficiency and quick responses during disaster-related incidents.

The same committee and its partner agencies in the government and private sectors figured out in the search and retrieval operations during the helicopter crash that killed at least eight Palace officials and during the onslaught of Typhoon Pepeng. 

Pestaño, who is expected to finish his remaining months in police service in the region, hailed the Cordillera police force for their un-ending commitment in the performance of their duties and responsibilities and urged them to continue their dedication to pursue the mission and objectives of the PNP.

The police director also urged all police offices in the region to be vigilant and on alert for the maintenance of law and order in preparation of the upcoming elections.
