BPPO to embark on water project
The Benguet Provincial Police Office (BPPO) is set to embark on a water distribution project seen to benefit households that could hardly access water.
The initiative is seen to improve the access of families in identified towns to potable water.
BPPO Director, Col. Reynaldo Pasiwen, said the project will be launched after the conduct of social investigation and assessment to determine the most deserving beneficiaries and the most feasible areas where the project can be launched.
The project will be implemented with the assistance of the Provincial Advisory Group for Police Transformation and Development (PAGPTD), a multi-stakeholder council that assists the police in achieving its transformation program objectives.
Under the proposal, communal water tanks will be constructed from where households can tap to have access to water.
Pasiwen said among other criteria, the project will be implemented in areas that have sustainable water source, but could hardly be accessed by households due to problems in the distribution.
Resources will be shared among the beneficiaries to be identified and the PGPTD, where the former will provide manpower while the latter will help generate material and financial resources needed for the construction.
The BPPO is winding up its “Pabahay Program”, an initiative that provides housing units to indigent families in the province that met the criteria set by the police unit. – Jane B. Cadalig
