TAGBILARAN CITY, July 6 (PIA) --Slowly but surely, Tagbilaran City is arming its police officers, especially in the onset of gun wielding criminals and drug personalities. 

From the national government, city crime busters are provided with 51 brand New Glock 9MM handguns, Mayor John Geesnell Yap bared during his State of the City Address last week. 

The 51 brand new handguns is also complemented by the city government sourced out M4 rifles, about 10 new units have been added to its armory inventory, the mayor announced too. 

The announcement drew a considerable applause from a satisfied crowd of city hall supporters and local government officials attending the mayor's second SOCA after assuming power. 
Already admitting shortage of police warm bodies just as Tagbilaran City continues to attract migrants, local officials led by Mayor Yap admit crime fighting has never been more challenging and he has pushed for an ingenious solution to the problem.

Already sending the formal request to the Philippine National Police (PNP) leadership for more police officers considering the bloated population to police ratio, Mayor Yap firms up his Active Local Emergency Response Team (ALERT) as police force multipliers in the mean time.

The mayor said around 500 ALERT personnel are now helping police secure the city's 15 barangays from criminal elements. 

City police chief and newly promoted Police Supt George Vale insists crimes can be minimized with the conduct of regular foot and mobile patrols, rigid implementation of police check points all over the city and the deployment of ALERT members. 

For its visibility and capacity in pursuing motorcycle riding criminals or those riding in tandem teams, the city police recently had three brand new motorcycle units for its innovative Motorcycle Anti-Street Crime Operatives (MASCO). 

Capping police capability and visibility are two new police patrol vehicles which the mayor also turned over shortly before the SOCA. 

The city has just implemented no-nonsense business and real property tax campaign, generating a whooping Php202,960,857.60 increase in local income during the 1st 2 years of the mayors term, sources at the mayors office said. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
