LARRAZABAL, Naval, Biliran, Feb. 20 (PIA) -- The men and women of the Biliran Police Provincial Office (BPPO) will soon have a new office building as the construction a standard police provincial office has already started on second week of February.
BPPO Provincial Director Julius M. Coyme, said during the groundbreaking ceremony program, the construction of the P24,150,080 worth building is a convergence program of the DPWH Biliran and the PNP.
"Actually, the construction started second week of February, targeting to finish it on November 6 this year," Coyme said.
The BPPO chief said the project came into picture when an LGU civil engineer assessed the BPPO building as "unstable for occupancy" after inspecting it as to its damage after the April 23, 2018 earthquake.
"During the annual operation plans and budget in Iloilo sometime in 2018," said Coyme, "the Police Regional Police Office 8 recommended the construction of the new BPPO."
He continued in his message that the new building of the BPPO is an upgraded version of a standard police provincial office building.
He envisioned that the men and women of the BPPO will be housed in a more decent and presentable police office.
In a message of Police Regional Office (PRO) 8 Regional Director PBGen. Ferdinand O. Divina, read by Police Colonel Arnel J. Apud, chief, regional logistics research and development division of PRO 8, he said the construction of the new PNP building is a manifestation that Biliran PPO is finally ready to provide the public with the quality service they rightfully deserve.
"The new building will not only serve as a mere structure, but it will signify as an avenue for community partnership and stakeholders support," the PRO 8 chief said. (ldl/rsv/PIA Biliran)
