CAMP BGEN OSCAR M FLORENDO – PBGEN EMMANUEL BALOLOY PERALTA, PRO1 Regional Director, was warmly welcomed by the men and women of Ilocos Norte Police Provincial Office, in Laoag City, during his command visit at said office on Monday (February 8).
During his visit, he lauded the leadership of INPPO for being able to control the contagion of the virus with no recorded active cases at the moment and maintaining a generally peaceful environment in their AOR.
PBGEN PERALTA also presided a command conference with all the Provincial Staff and Chiefs of Police in the province.
In his guidance, he urged all the commanders to proactively enhance security despite the province being a white area, to prevent possible recruitment of left-leaning organizations especially to the youth.
“Let us establish rapport with the management of all educational institutions in the province, kahit wala pang report ng recruitment, to avoid and preempt the possibility,” PBGEN PERALTA said.
Likewise, the Regional Director issued a directive on the continuous conduct of random drug testing to all personnel and reiterated that summary dismissal awaits those who will test positive. Meanwhile, 44 INPPO personnel were subjected to the same, all of which yielded negative results.

They received cash incentives from the Regional Director as a sign of his support to all those who wanted to return to the folds of the community.
