Ecija provincial police office, 22 Ecija cop stations get facelift under PNP’s ‘Oplan Hilamos’

CABANATUAN CITY, Nueva Ecija–The Nueva Ecija Provincial Police Office and 22 police stations have received a much-needed facelift under the Philippine National Police’s “Oplan Hilamos.”

          Senior Superintendent Crizaldo Nieves, PNP provincial police director, said of these police stations, the repair and maintenance of 16 has been completed.

          Still on-going are the police director’s quarters and six other police stations.

          Nieves said a total of P4.1 million has been spent for the province under the program. Its release was facilitated by Interior and Local Governments Secretary Manuel Roxas II and PNP Chief, Gen. Alan Purisima.

          Completed were police stations in the municipalities of Cabiao, Carranglan, Gen. Natividad, Gen. Tinio, Guimba, Jaen, Llanera, Lupao, Nampicuan, Quezon, San Leonardo, Sta. Rosa, Talavera, Talugtog and Zaragoza and the city police station in Palayan.

          Nearing completion are police stations in Gabaldon (80%), Sto. Domingo (80%)  and Licab and the cities of Cabanatuan (90%), Gapan (98%) and the Science City of Munoz.   

          “Oplan Hilamos” refers to the repair and maintenance of police stations, particularly leaking roofs, filthy toilets, broken floor tiles and dirty walls.

          The program was pursued by the Aquino administration to enhance public acceptance and perception of PNP offices and personnel.

          Last August, President Aquino approved the release of P170 million for the clean-up of 1,700 police stations nationwide.

Nieves said the clean-up will make police stations conducive places for learning.
