Police Chief Superintendent Agripino G. Javier is the new Regional Director of Region 10 the Police Chief visited Lanao del Norte last February 2, 2017

TUBOD, Provincial Capitol – Police Chief Superintendent Agripino G. Javier is the new Regional Director of Region 10 the Police Chief visited Lanao del Norte last February 2, 2017, he was delighted to be in Lanao del Norte for he complimented the beautiful scenery of our province specially the environmental area, Governor Imelda Quibranza-Dimaporo welcomed him along with 2nd District Congressman Abdullah Dimakuta-Dimaporo, they exchanged information regarding on the safety and security of the province.

“Since na wala pang report na nakakarating sa akin, ang presumption ko diyan ay matitino ang mga pulis dito unless na meron tayong malaman na meron din palang mga miyembro ng iskalawag at sana nga ang impression ko dito ay totoo” – Regional Director PC Superintendent Agripino G. Javier’s first impression on the police of our province is good he hopes that it stays that way.

The National Directives that were given to our new Regional Director was that the Philippine National Police (PNP) should stop any drug related operations such as Buy-bust operations, filing search warrants for drugs and even halting Operation Double Barrel or “Tokhang” as of now, for such operations will be for the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) only.

With the PNP out of the action against war on drugs the regional director still believes that this won’t affect the anti-drug largely enough that would cause big time drug dealers to go and conduct business once more. Even though the PDEA is currently undermanned right now they will be complimented by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

“Unang una liliwanagin ko sa kanila dahil marami pang nalilito dun sa paghinto nang aming partisipasyon at kampanya sa illegal drugs liliwanagin ko sa kanila kung ano yung pwede at kung ano yung di pwede at hihikayatin ko sila na pagtoonan ng pansin yung internal cleansing at pagdisiplina sa mga tao para wag na tayong maka dagdag pa ng problema nila sa Luzon.” – Regional Director on his marching orders in the region.
