SAN LUIS, Aurora: A top police official in this town has announced the completion of the P4.6-million three-storey building of San Luis Police Station, which is set to inaugurate before the end of this month.
Police Inspector Floriano Garcia, officer-in-charge Chief of Police of San Luis town, said that the facility will cater to the 27,252 populace in maintaining peace and order situation and serve 18 barangays, including the four coastal areas.
“The project is the joint efforts of the municipal government and the Philippine National Police. It was financed by a P2.6-million funding from the PNP for its phase 1 while P2 million was put up as counterpart fund by the municipal government for phase 2,” Garcia said,
He said that the three-storey building of the San Luis Police station sits in a 500-square meter land donated by the San Luis local government unit and is located at Barangay 2 Poblacion here.
The ground floor will house the jail for boys and girls while the other areas are for the offices of supply, finance, investigation, intelligence, administration and Women and Children Protection Desk.
The second floor, on the other hand, will house the offices for chief of police, deputy chief of police, operation, and police community relations while the third floor will serve as the function hall.
“We would like to extend our sincerest thanks and gratitude to the PNP national and Mayor Annabelle Tangson for the project and of course, to the Sangguniang Bayan because without them this project will not come into reality,” Garcia said as he pointed out that the police station is the first here in Central Aurora covering the towns of Baler, Dipaculao, Maria Aurora and San Luis while the other one is in Northern Aurora in Dinalungan town.
He said that it is very inspiring to have a model police station here in the province.
“It is a symbol of protection and honor for a man, where services revolve around the people and we must be responsible to protect the life, property and liberty of people as they say to serve and to protect,” Garcia said.
“We will exert double efforts to uphold the principles of the rule of law and natural justice and put maximum efforts to achieve a crime free society like what happened last whole week with a zero crime rate. I know that it will develop mutual confidence among my colleagues in the police force in solving crime,” he added.
