 Lingayen – Newly designated OIC – Provincial Police Director Belli Tamayo vowed to go all out against illegal drugs, as he admitted that if it remains a big problem “It will be my top priority,” Tamayo told members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) where he was invited during the August Body’s question hour last May 25.

            Immediate resolve of riding-in-tandem cases, Tamayo stressed, will also be given attention, as he informed the provincial board of PPO’s continued efforts to get the mastermind of the slay attempt on Assistant Provincial Health Officer Jeremy Agerico “Ming” Rosario, a former SP member.

            Riding-in-tandem assailants attacked Rosario while on his way home last March.

Tamayo, a native of San Miguel, Calasiao succeeded, PSSupt. Reynaldo Biay, who is now the regional chief of directorial staff in PNP Regional Office in San Fernando City, La Union.

            As OIC PNP provincial director, Tamayo will serve as vice chairman of the Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council (PADAC), an inter-agency organization which advocates programs against illegal drugs to promote peace and order in the province that is chaired by Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr.

            In an earlier meeting with PS/Supt. Tamayo on May 15, Gov. Espino directed the new OIC police director to further intensify anti-illegal drugs campaign.

            Meanwhile, SP Member Alfonso Bince asked Tamayo to come up with a solution for the rampant robbery of equipment in DepEd schools in the province.

            To resolve the occurrence of said robberies, Tamayo said he will require police personnel to gather information from school principals regarding robbery incidents in their school premises to shed light on said issue.

            Aside from mounting a crackdown on the illegal drugs trade, the OIC police chief bared that his administration will focus on enhancing the human resource management of the police force.

            Training and discipline for PNP personnel, attaining personnel strength and conduct of performance audit of chiefs of police in towns and cities in Pangasinan have been included in his plans.

            Tamayo’s new post is his first provincial assignment in Pangasinan after eight years of service in Mindanao. He is concurrent Regional Chief of Personnel and Human Resource and Development Office of PNP Regional Office.  /Mark Gerry Naval Oblanca
