Kalinga Police Chief vows to intensify implementation of traffic regulations to curb road accidents

Tabuk City, Kalinga – In a bid to reduce road accidents in the province, the new Officer-in-Charge of Kalinga Police Provincial Office pledged to reinforce traffic regulations.

In an interview with Guru Press Cordillera, Police Colonel Charles Domallig said he will sustain the good programs of the former Provincial Directors such as anti-illegal drugs operation, among others, but emphasized his focus is to ensure strict implementation of all traffic laws and ordinances to prevent vehicular traffic accidents, which he observed as the main cause of fatality in the locality.

“Based on the data, isu ti No. 1 nga cause of death ditoy, daytoy vehicular traffic accidents so kunak, naragsakakun nu ma-lessen, nu han tayo kaya nga ma-eliminate kasi aksidente, ma-lessen man lang,” conveyed Domallig.

He said he already instructed the chiefs of police to strengthen their campaign against reckless driving, speeding, driving under influence, and other major causes of any untoward incident.

These human errors, he added, are preventable for motorists.

Domallig formally assumed office as KPPO head on September 20, 2022.

Enhancement of internal cleansing

Domallig likewise mentioned of enhancing the internal cleansing program of the agency – a means of the PNP to get rid of rogue police officers. Nevertheless, he said he will mainly concentrate on reward more than punishment.

“Nu adda nagkamali, parusahan ngem nu adda met ti nagaramid ti nasayaat, give them reward. I am focusing more on reward to encourage and boost the morale of the PNP,” underscored the new KPPO head.

He disclosed some of the personnel are already aware of his kind of leadership since they were with him when he served as the Force Commander of 2nd Kalinga Provincial Mobile Force Company in 2019.

“Naanus tayo nu naanus da ngem nu adda ti han nga pumatpati, idiay tayo nga i-assert ti authority,” he reiterated.

He then challenged the police not to forget their basic duties.

Domallig encouraged the public to support their programs for the benefit of all. He stressed that the success of PNP programs, anchored with peace and security framework “MKK=K” (Malasakit, Kaayusan, Kapayapaan tungo sa Kaunlaran) of the PNP Chief, comes with public cooperation.
