In a recent press conference, Bataan PNP Provincial Director P/Col Villamor Tuliao informed the group that Bataan ranked 1st in Region 3 based on its accomplishment for the first quarter of 2019 in terms of operations, administration and crime solution efficiency.
Col Tuliao also boasts of the inclusion of the Mariveles Police Station and the Balanga City Police Station among the Top 3 contenders in the search for the BEST Police Station nationwide to be announced come August this year, in time for the PNP Anniversary.
Among the many activities and programs of the PNP in the pipeline according to Col Tuliao is the launching of “Kababaihan Kontra Krimen” aimed at putting a stop on violence against women and children on July 25 at the Bataan Police Provincial Office.
Just recently, Col. Tuliao spearheaded an intensified operation in the province which according to him, is a prelude to the directives of the PNP Regional Director and Governor Albert Garcia, to curb the rise of criminal activities.
Said operation resulted in the arrest of a number of “persons of interest” and the confiscation of illegal firearms in the towns of Mariveles, Limay, Orion, Morong and Balanga City.
Moreover, Col. Tuliao said that they’re heeding the marching orders of Gov. Abet Garcia to lower, if not totally eradicate the incidence of crimes by maximizing all the necessary resources in the province.
Still, during the presscon, Tuliao gave an update on the anti-illegal drug campaign: Bataan is now 50% drug-free as certified by PDEA, barangay officials, BADAC and even in the Regional level.
PD Tuliao even clarified the meaning of the terms “drug-free” and “drug-cleared”. Drug free means there are no drug users and pushers in the barangay while drug cleared means the barangay used to be infested with drug users and pushers but as a result of the intensified operations, the barangay is now cleared of the menace.
