MARIVELES, Bataan- To further establish a closer relationship with the public, as well as to get first hand information from the residents, the policemen in this town led by Supt. Raynold Rosero have been conducting “Dalaw sa Barangay” (barangay visitation).
Col. Rosero said that they have been able to visit barangays Maligaya, Lucanin, Malaya, Biaan, Alion and Townsite. The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group under Chief Inspector Rommel Labalan, CIDG Bataan chief, for their part, had been teaching barangay tanods in self defense.
The actions of Major Labalan and Col. Rosero come at a time when the PNP leadership is being rocked by corruption, ‘hulidap’ and highly controversial issues, demoralizing the PNP.
