Crime Report HotLines

BANGUED, Abra, Aug. 21 (PIA) — Governor Eustaquio P. Bersamin led the launching of the United for Abra information drive in the province last week with the theme, “Crime-free Abra”

The event started with a motorcade around the Bangued town proper with the vehicles bearing streamers printed with the hotline numbers of the Abra Provincial Police Office (APPO) and the Bangued Municipal Police Station (MPS).

This is for the information of the general public on what numbers to contact in case of emergency or in case they witness a crime committed in their communities or have information leading to the solution of a crime.

A short program followed at the town plaza with the symbolic candle lighting and releasing of balloons led by Bersamin, Cordillera Police regional director, Chief Supt. Benjamin B. Magalong; Col. Eliseo C. Posadas, Brigade Commander of the Philippine Army; Bangued Mayor Ryan Luna, Police Senior Superintendent . Alexander Rafael, Abra Provincial Director, Mayor Esther Bernos who represented Congresswoman Ma. Jocelyn Bernos, and all the heads of agencies in the province.

The event was conceptualized because of the killings in Abra especially in Bangued. It aims to to create awareness among people of their role in crime solution through their participation with the police, by texting or calling the police whatever information they have or know about a certain particular case.

In his message, Bersamin specially expressed grateful appreciation to Atty. Glo Acena-Florendo and Mr. Willy Estrada who conceptualized this initiative towards a peaceful Abra, and who at the same time sponsored the printing of the streamers used during the motorcade.

The Governor reiterated his usual appeal to the people of Abra to cooperate with the law enforcers by being pro-active in the crime solution and to stop blaming the police, the prosecutors and all who are tasked to carry out the dispensation of justice because “we, the community people are part of the pillars of the criminal justice system.”

Magalong also thanked the people for their support in the peacekeeping efforts of the police as he also stressed upon all his officers and men to sustain their efforts to regain the trust and confidence of the people to the police that have been lost for a long time.

Bernos also appealed for cooperation among all Abrenios to continue to work for peace in Abra.

The streamers that bear the hotline numbers of the local police are now hung at strategic places for the general public to have a ready access so that they can text the police or call the police information that would lead to solution of cases. (JDP/MTBB-PIA CAR,Abra)

    • The numbers made available are not meant to prevent murders – I do believe they are numbers to call if you want to be a responsible citizen and report any crime that you witness and hopefully will lessen the number of crimes committed.

  3. you are all wasting your time and money putting all these banners. In the end, gagawin lang pang kumot yan or raincoat sa tag-ulan. Yang mga kasali sa lighting of candles and releasing of balloons (by the way do you know where this balloons end up? it end up polluting the rivers and oceans) are part of the problem.

    • TO: MR. JACK RUBI…

      Sir, your comment posted on 8/25/2012 intrigues me immensely.

      You have implied that the New Hospital is ‘walang facilities’ or ill-equipped.

      I presume you have seen the inside of the Hospital? And what facilities or equipment is

      missing that you have noticed.

      If you have photos of the Hospital, inside or outside, please send them to SYSOP for

      him to post in the Website. Many thanks in advance.
