NAGA CITY — The Naga City Police Office (NCPO), with the support of the city government, formally launched during the flag-raising ceremony at the city hall compound here a new program aimed at reducing the incidence of crime against property.
Moved by Mayor John Bongat’s earnest desire to bring back security and order in the streets and in the homes, the city PNP here launched the “APRUB” program that is aimed at facing the problem squarely, to be made more effective by ensuring the active participation not only of concerned law enforcement agencies but also by the people themselves.
From the word “APRUB” A stands for “Aratubangon” which means to face the problem head-on with all the concerned offices and officials discussing and giving their all-out support in addressing the problem of theft, robbery, snatching, and similar petty crimes. P stands for Panirimbagon which means that violators should be punished for the crimes they committed. R stands for Ralamagon or to run after the criminals and bring them to the bar of law and justice. U stands for Uruntukon or to put a stop to these criminal activities, while B stands for Baraguhon, or give the criminals an opportunity to reform after being meted with the penalties they deserve so that they could go back to the mainstream of society and become productive citizens once again.
PSSupt. Antonio N. Gardiola, Jr. City NCPO Director, asked the city residents for their vigilance and help in pinning down law violators through the Barangay Intelligence Network and their respective Barangay officials within the city’s 27 barangays.
Gardiola added they will ask the cooperation of the operators of junk shops, jewelry shops, pawn shops, second-hand stores and other establishments when running after robbers and snatchers who usually dispose of their loot in these shops, or block their attempt to gain profit from these stolen items by refusing to purchase them from suspicious characters.
“We are all involved in this program; some of the residents are not aware that they are also committing a crime by patronizing products that come from illegal sources, as defined by the government’s Anti-Fencing Law.”

If this was supposed to be a sunset, where is the sun? If you called it "cogon grass with flowers" that would have been more appropriate. If the picture was enhanced, it was overdone and unrealistic.

  • Theanna: Thanks Judge for that timely and alarming info on the country's postal service. I thought that by now, things are much better than when I was there. May I add a few cents worth of fond remembrance of the late fabulous Fr. James Reuter, SJ? I never met him but my brothers and male relatives were all Ateneans and Fr.Reuter's name was often mentioned at our house. When I heard that Roxanne of Cyranno de Bergerac was being played by one of the handsomest guys in school, I had to see it. Also, my brother told us about the time our father and he met him on Ateneo Ave. After exchanging greetings, he asked father, " Is he your eldest son?" My father replied, "Oh no, my eldest son is a daughter." The whole family burst into tearful laughter. View Post

  • Theanna: Thanks for the above concerns. I thought I was the only one who sensed something odd, since I read the news printed under the Business section on Nov.15. I posted a comment, after much deliberation, on Nov. 17 re the offensive word in the headline. My simple arithmetic doesn't add up to the expected results of this huge 3billion peso project. I feel like the child in Hans Christian Andersen's story of "The Emperor's New Clothes". I can't figure out how the people there can generate 100 tons of garbage a day. View Post

  • Pastor Dan: Can we rely on the government to be able to address the perennial problem of hunger and malnutrition among marginalized children ? Your guess is as good as mine... I just thought we could be more introspective with the developmental role of privately funded NGOs. The NGOs can play a crucial role in addressing this issue... more so if the present dispensation manifest some tangible support for them... View Post
  • Engr. Efren Rempola: Tama ka dyan, Manoy Joel, bako man si Fortuno o si Aga Muhlach an mabugtak saimo sa Kapitolyo tangaring ibalik mo sa mga taga-Camarines Sur an harong na ini. Kun talagang habo saimo ni Aga, sa cuarto distrito, yaon baga si dating Cong. Wimpy Fuentebella asin an mga Alcalde na supotado ki Spkr Noli Fuentebella. Dae naman yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte ta aram naman ninda na drama man sana an labanan kan mag-amang Luis asin L-Ray. Sa quinto distrito (Rinconada), Manoy Joel, yaon baga si dating Cong Nancing Alfelor. Aram man sana kan gabos na Rinconada na iyo ini an tunay na LP bakong si Fortuno. Dae naman pati yan ma-iriba ki Gurang na Villafuerte nin huli ta bistado na an iwal-mag-ama na sarong pakitang-tao lang tangaring sinda-sinda na sana an maglaban sa eleccion, eh, ngonyan yaon ka dyan Manoy, dikit na sacripisyo na lang, hahalion na an mag-ama asin ma-ibabalik na an Kapitolyo sa mga tao.

More BPOs might operate in the city as the confidence on power supply is high. Good work Mayor John Bongat! View Post
