The Aklan Provincial Police Office (APPO) acknowledged that the province of Aklan lacks police personnel.
According to APPO Public Information Officer P03 Nida Gregas, they need to add PNP personnel since currently the ratio of police personnel to residents of Aklan is 1:1,500 or there is one (1) police per 1,500 Aklan residents.
Gregas added that they also need police personnel at present for the upcoming village and SK (Youth Council) elections.
Meanwhile, regarding illegal gambling and thievery in Boracay, she did not have an idea whether the addition of police personnel in Boracay is already necessary to further monitor the said illegal activities in the Island.
