PMGEN DANAO JR was enthusiastic with the support shown by the local government, advocacy groups and the community towards the NCRPO’s endeavour. “Hindi namin ito kakayanin ng kung wala po kayo na tumutulong. Hindi kakayanin ng pulis ang pagpapanatili ng peace and order kung kami kami lang . We are advocating, recruiting para po makadagdag ng mga force multipliers. Kaya naman we are very glad that in a short period of time, our Chief of Police was able to encourage our people to join sa ating anti-criminality, anti terrorism at anti illegal drugs. Sa tulong ng ating mga City Mayor, City council at civilian volunteers, ay mas mapapabuti natin ang ating paglilingkod para sa ating mga kababayan,” he said.
He further assured that NCRPO will remain true to their mandate despite all the issues faced by the organization. “We never condone and will never tolerate the wrong doings aof our personnel,” he ended. ###
