With Mayor Romualdez leading the ground-breaking
TACLOBAN CITY- A new police station for the Tacloban City Police Office (TCPO) will soon to rise and serve thousands of people in the northern part of the City, as a groundbreaking ceremony was held on July 9 at Brgy. 101 New Kawayan.
Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez gladly led the dropping of the time capsule as well as the ceremonial turning of the soil, together with Police Brigadier General Marvin Manuel Pepino, Regional Logistics and Research Development Division (RLRDD) Chief Police Colonel (PCOL) Arnel Apud, City Director PCOL Michael David and Police Major Aspiro Badiola of Regional Engineering Unit 8, to signify the start of the construction of the P5 million worth police station building.
The 1,000 square-meter lot was donated by the local government as there is a need for an office in the northern part of Tacloban that will provide security and police-related concerns, PCol David stressed.
The project, expected to be finished within this year, is set to serve 45,000 Tacloban North residents and will be the third police station here in the city.
One is situated in Abucay and the Police Station 2, on the other hand, is located in San Jose, he explained.
David also added that they are working hand in hand with Mayor Romualdez to address the increase of crime incident rate in the area and sustain the peace and order situation in the city though we continuously contain the spread of COVID-19.
Meantime, Mayor Romualdez, in his message, considered the soon-to- rise Police Station 3, as another development for the city.
Present also during the activity was Ibrahim Adona from JA Developers and Engineers and other concerned officials.
