LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Philippine National Police Chief Archie Francisco Gamboa led the groundbreaking of the P40 million, multipurpose building at the Police Regional Office- Cordillera headquarters in Camp Bado Dangwa, La Trinidad, Benguet recently.
Gamboa also led the launching of the newly constructed P8M officers’ barracks as well as the turnover of 24 desktop computers and an ambulance from the Public Safety Mutual Benefit Fund, Inc.
The building will house offices, quarters, and a multipurpose hall for functions and conferences. It is expected to be finished by 2021.
Some offices, including the Public Information Office, will be relocated and temporarily hold office at the newly inaugurated officers’ quarters pending completion of the new building.
Gamboa said the PNP is doing its best to improve the facilities of the police, which would allow the organization to provide better services.
During his visit, Gamboa reiterated the challenge for the regional police office to maintain its “home of the most disciplined cops” tag.
“The banner, ‘home of the most disciplined cops’ captures what the leadership of the PNP aspires to imbibe in every PNP offices from the National headquarters, down,” Gamboa said.
“Continue having the leadership value that the PNP uphold,” he added.
Gamboa said police should continue to earn the public’s trust, noting that the PNP enjoys the third spot in the list of government agencies with a high approval rating which he hoped would continue and further improve.
“Sama-sama nating ituloy ang mga nasimulang pagbabago upang tuluyang gumanda ang ating imahe sa mata ng publiko,” he said.
“We firmly believe that the PNP is gaining the trust of the public because of its sincerity in performing its mandate,” Gamboa said. – PNA with a report from Corwin Lucas Golonan and Joshua Elisha Soriano
