Tagum Mayor Rellon on all-out war vs. criminals through swift pursuit, arrest, prosecution

nov 20, 2013
 
Vowing he is making a recent case “a sample”, Tagum City Mayor Allan Rellon said that “crime does pay” in his campaign against crimes and criminals in his city.
He recently showed his his anti-crime ways being carried through out through swift pursuit, swift arrest and swift prosecution as exemplified by a case of a suspected bag snatcher who made his heist Monday and “not less than 24 hours”, on the same day, the suspect was collared by pursuing police team in neighboring Asuncion town.
The city police immediately worked for inquest proceeding filing a robbery case against the suspect, one named Ddjay Cruz, a resident of the town.
“This sample would continue,” the mayor declared even as Tuesday afternoon he met police and Church officials and leaders of civilian volunteer force multipliers to wrap up a tight security plan for the peaceful and successful fiesta celebration of Tagum City by Sunday and in days preoccupied with celebratory activities this week.   
He said that the “sample” was made for three reasons: first, “the victim cooperated with the police”, second, “the police made swift pursuit without sleep” and third, “the justice system is moved with the inquest proceeding against the suspect.”
He also cited the important role of civilian volunteer force multipliers like the newly formed United Taxpayers Against Crime (UTAC) in augmenting the police force as part in his flagship EAGLES WINGS program, particularly in the agenda of genuine peace, safety and security.
UTAC members are composed of businessmen, tricycle and single motorcycle owners and drivers providing information and force-multiplying volunteerism to augment law enforcers and collaborating to support Rellon’s administration in fighting crimes.
Mayor Rellon said he is happy to note that UTAC gained increase in membership since it was organized in the advent of his administration last July.
UTAC has already over 500 members throughout Tagum City.
Earlier, the mayor said that he was beefing up the 30 motorcycle-riding police teams to be doubled in numbers, with acquisition of more single motorcycles and communication equipment, besides that motorcycle-riding civilian force multipliers have been increasing to augment the city police.
Last Friday the city police apprehended a robbery suspect, a certain Jeyrome Mahusay, who had still a stockpile of his “IT loot” that consisted of 13 cellphones, 9 laptops, one iPad, one digital camera and one portable DVD.
PNP Tagum police chief Solomon de Castilla urged robbery and snatching victims to check the valuables if they own any of which.
“They can claim it provided they can show proof of ownership,” PSupt. De Castilla said.
By nightfall Wednesday, the city’s giant Christmas tree located at the Freedom Park was lighted up again with a joyful program attended by public, Church and private sector officials, and thousands of city onlookers.
Thousands of Christmas lights  embellished and strewn around the Christmas tree were switched on again to continue the yearly tradition of giving Christmas cheer to Tagumenyos. 
This Thursday evening, the revived Mutya ng Tagum will see action onstage at RDR Gym at the Sports Center, fronting the provincial Capitol compound, Barangay Mankilam.
Tagumenyos, religious as they are, will be celebrating the feast of their Patron Saint Christ the King on Sunday. (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
