DAGUPAN CITY – Superintendent Christopher N.

media at Starbucks in Dagupan City.
Abrahano received the recognition for his outstanding accomplishment in the implementation of PCR programs and projects covering the period from June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015, which contributed immensely to the attainment of the mission of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in bringing the police closer to the community.
The certificate was signed by Police Senior Superintendent Rolie Mabalot Saltat, the officer in charge of the PPPO.
Among the significant programs and projects initiated by Abrahano that gained support from Mayor Belen T. Fernandez and the non-government organizations were the K-Pulis Dagupan (Kaibigan ng Pulis Dagupan, Kaagapay ng Pulis Dagupan), a crime prevention project involving the LGU and NGOs in conducting Oplan Sita to an average of 21 operations in a day; and the Oplan Bando Publiko project which was launched to address petty crimes in the central business district.
As a result, the city’s crime decreases from 227 during the first quarter of 2014 to 184 for the same quarter in 2015.
Abrahano disclosed that the recognition was due to the continued trust and confidence of stakeholders in peace and the local government’s continued support for Pulis Dagupan’s campaign against crime through community involvement.
“In 2014 alone, the city government poured in an unprecedented amount of P13,804,396 million which covered fixed expenditures, capital outlay for crime prevention and solution, additional allowance for security personnel, BPATs (Barangay Peace-keeping Action Teams) and overall peace and order expenses for our station,” said Abrahano.
The Dagupan City Police Station was Best PCR PNCO (National Level) in 2013, the Best PCO (Provincial Level) and Best Police Station (Provincial Level) in 2015.
For the same year Mayor Belen was awarded the Best Local Chief Executive for PCR (Regional Level). (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO/July 1, 2015)
