A total of 247 police officers have been downloaded by the Police Regional Office 6 to different provincial and highly urbanized police units in Western Visayas, to augment their existing manpower strength.

Formerly assigned at the Regional Mobile Force Battalion 6, the 247 police personnel were distributed to the Negros Occidental, Iloilo, Antique, Aklan, Capiz, and Guimaras Police Provincial Offices, as well as Bacolod and Iloilo City Police Offices.

Among the downloaded police personnel from PRO 6, Negros Occidental, Aklan, and Capiz, as well as BCPO got 20 additional personnel each, Iloilo Police Provincial Office got 35, while 132 were given to the Iloilo City Police Office.

PLt. Col. Arnel Solis, regional police spokesman, explained that ICPO got a greater chunk in the distribution, in preparation for the activation of additional police stations in Iloilo City.

These downloaded personnel will supplement the current strength of the receiving police units, boost their respective present personnel capability, and enhance and support the delivery of security and public safety services, Solis said.

In a statement, PBrig. Gen. Jack Wanky, regional police director, reminded the 247 police personnel to stay motivated and perform their job well, with utmost integrity, dedication, and professionalism.

“You are there to help the police stations in intensifying their crime prevention and solution efforts. Additionally, devotedly endeavor to keep the people feel safe in your areas of responsibility,” Wanky said, as he also cautioned them from seeking any political patronage when it comes to their assignments.

“We are quick in giving awards and recognition to performing PNP personnel, but we will be unforgiving to those found breaking the rules of the organization and to those engaging in illegal activities,” he stressed.*
