“We serve and protect”
This is the slogan that the Philippine National Police (PNP) adheres to in order to stop different kinds of crime in the country.
Regarding this, different high ranking officials of the PNP Region 6 recently arrived in Boracay to visit the Boracay Tourist Assistance Center (BTAC).
According to Deputy Police Inspector Fidel Gentallan of the Boracay PNP, this is a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) of the high ranking officials of the agency to have an ocular inspection on lower units wherein one of those strictly alerted is Boracay.
Gentallan said such is the case since the island is considered one of the popular and favorite destinations of tourists and also because of its “in-demand” bars and resorts.
Meanwhile, as preparation for “summer” a time when flock of vacationers is expected, authorities tightened their force for quick crime deterrence in Boracay.
Included in those who visited the island was Chief Superintendent Josephus Angan of the Police Regional Office (PRO-6), Police Provincial Directors and other high ranking officials of the Aklan Police Office (APPO).
