What does Lubuagan do to maintain zero crime rate?

Updated: May 12, 2021

Lubuagan, Kalinga ─ Lubuagan recorded zero crime rate since the start of this year which is attributed to the conduct of regular patrol, barangay visitation and implementation of the community support program, according to Lubuagan Chief of Police PCpt. Garry Gayamos.

“We do these so that the populace will feel the presence of the PNP in maintaining peace and order. We are strengthening our partnership between the community because we cannot work alone in the maintenance of peace and order. We need the community to work with us,” Gayamos explained.

When it comes to conflicts, Gayamos said that they work with municipal and barangay officials and elders to promptly address disputes, preventing the escalation of problems later.

The police personnel are also working on the implementation of the community support program for 2021 at communist terrorist groups (CTGs)-affected barangays classified by the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC).

“Adda ti community support program by the PNP and Army. The PNP has an ELCAC fund nga isu ti usaren mi in the implementation of activities for this program, but we decided that the monthly ELCAC fund ket ited mi kadagitoy affected barangays,” Gayamos informed.

The PNP community support program is intended for CTG-affected barangays which is funded amounting to PhP20,000 monthly.

For Sitio Sukiap of Barangay Tanglag, the fund was utilized for the construction of waiting shed. Meanwhile, Sitio Liglig of Barangay Tanglag and the 3 Barangays of Uma are set to receive the amount of PhP20,000 each to be utilized for their priority needs. The projects to be implemented are subject for monitoring by the Lubuagan Municipal Police Station.

“At least ma-convince tayo dagitoy supporters ti NPA nga agtiwalag tu ket mapan dan tu ti gobyerno, katulungan tayon tu isuda. With the ELCAC, napigsa nga mangputed iti relasyon ti daduma nga marked barangays so we assure to convince them nga awan met ti pagturungan na dayta nga ilablaban da,” Gayamos said.

In a separate interview with Mayor Charisma Anne Dickpus, she conveyed her support to the police force in the municipality recognizing that "they are also part of our community. They help keep peace and order here. Masapul nga ipakita tayo met ti suporta tayo kanyada ta dakkel ti role da iti maysa nga komyunidad."

"Peace and order will always prevail if we unite. Kasi amin tayo, karkaru dagiti kapulisan, we have the same vision - that is to foster safety within Lubuagan. Isunga to maintain peace, masapul ti kooperasyon ti community. This is a joint effort. We are more than glad to learn about the zero crime rate in Lubuagan,” the mayor expressed.
