The repair and reconstruction of police facilities damaged by Supertyphoon Yolanda (Haiyan) in November 2013 is now a “full-scale construction work,” a senior police official said on Friday.
The PNP spokesman, Chief Supt. Wilben Mayor, said in a press briefing in Camp Crame that the PNP has allocated P335 million for repairing and rebuilding damaged police stations.
Mayor said that Notices of Fund Availability (NFA) totaling P335,386,414 was released last June for rehabilitation work in Bicol, Mimaropa, Western Vi-sayas, Eastern Visayas and Cara-ga regions.
Of the total, P294,853,875.61 was allocated for Eastern Visayas, the hardest hit among the Police Regional Offices, to rehabilitate 183 police stations that were destroyed or damaged by the typhoon.
Another P4,684,258 was allocated to rebuild 15 municipal police station buildings in Leyte, the PNP spokesman said.
Mayor said that the remaining amount was distributed to other police regional offices that were badly damaged by the typhoon.
