POLICE personnel in the Ilocos region were lauded recently for helping to keep the environment and their communities clean.
Police trainees from the Public Safety Field Training Program Class 2020-03 assigned at the Agoo Municipal Police Station in La Union took charge in conducting a cleanup drive at the coastal area of Barangay Sta. Rita Central. The police trainees conducted the drive to promote cleanliness and environment protection.
Meanwhile, elements of the Badoc Municipal Police Station and the 2nd Provincial Mobile Force Company, Ilocos Norte Provincial Police Office, together with members of advocacy groups, also held a cleanup drive at the border control in Barangay Sta. Cruz.
This was done to show their support for frontline workers amid the observance of the 26th Police Community Relations celebration.
No less than Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief, Police General Guillermo Eleazar commended the police personnel in the Ilocos region for their efforts in initiating these cleanup projects in the communities.
“Nakatutuwa na pinapalawig pa ng ating kapulisan ang kalinisan, hindi lamang sa kanilang mga presinto, kung hindi pati na din sa ibang bahagi ng komunidad,” PGen Eleazar said.
“Tunay na mas mainam tumira sa lugar na malinis at maayos sa tulong ng bawat isa,” he added
