Apayao PD told to prioritize anti-drugs, illegal logging drive
by Redjie Melvic Cawis / PIA

Apayao Gov. Eleanor Bulut-Begtang called on the new provincial police chief to work closely with local officials and to prioritize anti-drugs and anti-illegal logging drives in the province.

P/Col. Byron Tegui-in took over as the new director of the Apayao Provincial Police Office, replacing Col. Ceasar Tannagan, in a ceremony presided by Police Regional Office-Cordillera Director B/Gen. Israel Ephraim Dickson at the Camp Bado Dangwa, La Trinidad, Benguet on Aug. 6.

Begtang said local chief executives,  the police, and the community should have a good working relationship to ensure that programs on peace and order are implemented.

Magiging mas peaceful pa ang Apayao kapag maganda ang pagsasama at pagtatrabaho ng kapulisan at ng mga local officials, at sana magtuloy-tuloy na ito,” Begtang said.

Apayao is the most peaceful province in the Cordillera. 

Begtang also ordered the new police director to prioritize the campaign against illegal drugs and the problem on illegal logging in the province.

“Although illegal drugs is not  a rampant problem, there have been reports on illegal drugs entering the province,” she said.

She added that the police should give significance to environmental laws particularly on curbing illegal cutting of trees.

Apayao has one of the biggest forest covers in the region, and is known as the “Last Frontier.”

“We need the police to help in making sure that the environment and natural resources of Apayao are taken care of. We must protect the forests from illegal loggers or even hunters,” she added.

Begtang said that Apayao PPO’s changing of guards is a welcome development.
