BESAO, Mountain Province – A two-story building for the Besao Municipal Police Station will soon rise in Barangay Kin-iway (Poblacion).

Police Regional Office-Cordillera Director, B/Gen. David K. Peredo, Jr. and Mountain Province Police Provincial Director, Col. Sibley P. Dawiguey, Jr. led the groundbreaking ceremony of the project on Jan. 31. 

The standard two-story type-B/C police station building with a P5 million funding from the Philippine National Police will be constructed in a 400-meter lot from the local government unit of Besao.

Peredo said this is a significant milestone for the agency as it highlights the PNP’s commitment to providing better working environment for its personnel to inspire them to render dedicated and quality public service.

“This marks a significant milestone in our journey towards enhancing the capabilities of the PNP. This event is a symbolic gesture that brings together the PNP, the LGU, the entire project team, and the community to celebrate our unity towards progress and development,” Peredo said.

Elsie Lomong-oy representing Besao Mayor Bryne O. Bacwaden said the project symbolizes a collective vision and determination to create a testament to the community’s values and aspirations.

“This ground-breaking ceremony signifies our collective vision and determination to create something extraordinary, something that will stand as a testament to our values and aspirations. It symbolizes growth, progress and innovation, and values deeply ingrained in our partnership,” she said.

Peredo called on the Besao MPS personnel to remain steadfast in serving and protecting the community.

“The journey to service has not been easy but the LGU will always be behind you as you defend and safeguard to maintain the peace and order in Besao. Let us be reminded that more than the building of Besao MPS, our goal is to secure the welfare and the best interests of the people of Besao,” he said.

The ceremony was attended by officials from PRO-Cor, MPPO, Besao MPS led by Cpt. Janice T. Pating, and Besao local government officials and employees. – Valerie Jane Taguba
