PRO-Cor equips MP police w/ surveillance through drones
by Harley F. Palangchao

MOUNTAIN PROVINCE – The Cordillera police command continue to equip the provincial police command with state-of-the-art technology such as drones to boost their operational capabilities.

Aside from 10 units of Taurus 9mm pistols, Police Brig. General Rolando Nana turned over three Mavic Pro platinum drones to the Mountain Province Police Provincial Office under Police Col. Clarence Casilio, last week.

Nana expressed confidence that with the brand new drones, Mountain Province police can improve its monitoring and surveillance activities, including helping local government units in rapid assessment during calamities.

Many government agencies have recognized the value of having drones in line with the government’s bid to improve its services during calamities or disasters.

The Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines are always in the forefront during calamities or disaster, thus the need for drones during these difficult times.

Late last year, the PNP general headquarters has acquired 700 drones to beef up law enforcement and its fight against insurgency, rebellion and terrorism.

The drones have been distributed to the regional police commands and to the special units of the PNP such as the Special Action Force and provincial mobile groups.

PNP Director General Oscar Albayalde said that drones are important since these serve as part of the surveillance operations of policemen, especially those involved in anti-insurgency operations.

Nana, meanwhile, awarded 12 Mountain Province Police Office personnel for their exemplary accomplishments against wanted persons and the campaign against illegal drugs, among others.

Awarded were Casilio, Police Lt/Col. Fernando Botangen, Police Capt. Faith Igualdo, Police Lts. Nancy Sagandoy and Nestor Malinas, Police M/Sgts. Freddy Chumayag, Clint Changrapen and James Yodong Jr., PS/Sgt Exequel Langpa, Police Cpl. Nardo P. Ngilac, Jr., Pat Jayson Chris Fagkang and non-uniformed personnel Prudina Makitay.

The provincial command also presented to Nana the 10 assorted firearms seized during police operations during the first quarter of 2019.
