Benguet police nabs 38 wanted men in Jan in intensified drive
by Harley F. Palangchao

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Around 38 individuals, including five top most wanted persons in the province, were arrested in January alone as a result of a renewed campaign by the Benguet Police Provincial Office.

Upon his assumption as acting provincial police director, S/Supt. Lyndon Mencio directed the 13 municipal police stations to launch a more intensified manhunt against all wanted persons in the province.

The manhunt is simultaneously implemented with the government’s war on drugs.

Aside from the five TMWP in the provincial level, nine TMWP in the municipal level and 24 other individuals with standing arrest warrants were likewise collared in sting of police operations.

Mencio said that 14 are wanted for rape, child abuse, violence against women and childred, and frustrated murder.

The 24 arrested individuals are wanted for acts of lasciviousness, estafa, theft, malicious mischief, and for violating the Bouncing Check Law.

Supt. Tessie Sarmiento, the provincial command’s spokesperson, attributed the series of arrest to the continued support of the communities and the public to the peacekeeping and anti-criminality campaign of the provincial police command.

“The accomplishment is a manifestation of concerted effort on collaboration, coordination, cooperation, and consultation of the Benguet PNP investigators and operatives with the active support of the community and the local government officials,” Sarmiento said.

Sarmiento added that the Benguet police command under Mencio will continue its command visits to the 13 municipal police stations and courtesy calls to the municipal and barangay chief executives in a bid to maintain Benguet’s moniker as the most peaceful province in the Cordillera.

The Benguet police command is currently tabulating the crime reports submitted by the different municipal police stations to evaluate its operational plans towards better crime clearance and crime solution efficiency ratings.

Sarmiento said that the Benguet PNP leadership acknowledges the value of police-community relation as an effective strategy in maintaining peace and order and ensuring public safety in the province.
