The Talisay City Police Station is asking the Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) for additional augmentation personnel for the city.
Eight policemen from the Provincial Public Safety Company (PPSC) of CPPO have been assigned so far in Talisay since Wednesday, January 10, following the relief of 12 city police personnel.
But the city is expecting at least 14 policemen from the province.
Superintendent Jason Villamater, chief of Talisay City police, said the city needs more policemen, considering the comeback of police-initiated operations to weed out illegal drugs.
He said though he will understand if the additional augmentation force will only be deployed to the city after the Sinulog festivities.
“Antayin natin after Sinulog if meron bang additional augmentation para sa Talisay Police Station,” he said.
Mayor Eduardo Gullas said it’s difficult to maintain peace and order when they’re short-handed.
“Naa’y gi-relieve, so make sure nga

Nagsapaw-sapaw ang atong mga events. Kailangan nga we should be complete,” he said.
He also reminded Villamater to ensure police visibility in key areas of the city.
The 12 policemen, who were deployed for New Year Day’s security, reportedly went on vacation without permission from their superiors. The result of the investigation is still pending before CPPO.
The erring policemen were transferred to the CPPO’s Police Provincial Holding Unit.
As part of their career advancement, the 12 policemen will undergo a seminar on beat patrol course.
In a separate development, the city government has turned over four motorcycles and one five-seater Toyota Avanza to the city police.
Villamater thanked Gullas for the vehicles that are seen to help improve police operations, including beat patrol.
Talisay City police now have three patrol cars.—
