Calbayog City Police Chief, P/Lt.Col. Joel C. Garcia believes that church goers need to feel secure by seeing police presence in the vicinity of the church.

“We conduct troop formation and account of personnel infront of Sts. Peter & Paul Cathedral as a way of letting the church goers feel secured by seeing our presence,” P/Lt. Col. Garcia informed Calbayog Journal.

Calbayog City Chief of Police (COP) further said that such kind of innovation in troop formation and personnel accounting “gives our PNP personnel in the Roman Catholic faith the opportunity to hear mass, wearing their uniforms with pride yet humble.”

“Other personnel in respective (whether outgoing and/incoming) shifts are tasked to conduct checkpoints simultaneously in strategic locations within the city for at least 30 minutes in implementing city ordinances and other laws,” COP Garcia concluded.
