PRO6 sends off troops and resources for BSKE 2018
Three days before the election, PRO6 shows force and resources during the Send-Off Ceremony held at the parade ground inside Camp Delgado. The send-off ceremony was attended by augmentation personnel with a total 2,984. The augmentation is composed of personnel who were recalled from schoolings/trainings and the Regional Support Units. Overall, a total of 8,511 personnel will render election duties in 3,571 voting centers.
During the send-off ceremony this morning, personnel were reminded not to be complacent and should not underestimate the barangay election because with relatives and neighbor’s competing with each other, it makes it more personal and more intense, stressed PSSUPT Remus Canieso, the regional chief directorial staff of PRO6 in his welcome remarks. “The essential mission of the PNP is to provide security to ensure the safe, credible and honest conduct of the Barangay and SK elections in our region.” PSSUPT Canieso added.
Chief Supt. Cesar Hawthorne Binag underscored in his message that election duty is an opportunity to render service for country and people. This is the chance to show competence, professionalism and dedication as snappiest and best men and women of the PNP. Binag also reminded the troops to do what is right. “As a policeman, we should always remain neutral as we discharge our duties and responsibilities for Barangay and SK election, respect human rights at all times and strictly follow our police operational procedures in this kind of operation. “Tayo na para sa kapayapan at kaunlaran para sa kinabukasan”, said General Binag,
Along with the send-off, Police Chief Superintendent Cesar Hawthorne R Binag, Regional Director of Police Regional Office 6 (PRO6) is distributing new wheels for the use of its city and municipal police stations in the region. Out of 929 units in Camp Crame, Quezon City, 30 units of the vehicle were delivered to PRO6.

The additional patrol vehicles will immensely improve the PNP move capability and a part of the Capability Enhancement Program (CEP) of the Philippine National Police, which is geared towards the 10 Year Modernization Program.
The personnel along with the resources are expected to render duty starting today and will remain or until their services are terminated by their respective election supervisors. PRO6 appeals to the public to cooperate in and abide with the guidelines implemented during election period and be part of the safe, secure, honest and fair elections.
