Escalante withdrawing
all police force support


The Escalante Sangguniang Panlungsod passed three resolutions yesterday afternoon withdrawing all of the city government’s support to the Philippine National Police, including the use of its building that currently houses the police station.

Councilor Santiago Maravilla said the relief of 12 policemen from their town by Chief Supt. Cipriano Querol, Western Visayas police regional director, without consulting Mayor Melecio Yap, was a big insult to the local officials.

The Escalante SP, in its regular session yesterday, passed the three resolutions – the first of which is to withdraw and stop any and all forms of support to the PNP by the city government, Maravilla said.moremoremore

PNP ready to find
new headquarters

The Philippine National Police will abide with whatever the decisions of Mayor Melecio Yap and the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Escalante are, including the order for them to vacate the city police headquarters, Senior Supt. Allan Guisihan, provincial police director of Negros Occidental, said yesterday.

Guisihan, who admitted that the building was donated by the city government to house the Escalante police, said they will transfer to another  location, or may rent a private building, near the soon-vacated police headquarters.

He, however, assured the residents of Escalante that the basic police service being rendered to them will remain “as is”, although he admitted that the development has caused demoralization among the local police force.moremoremore
