Several officials in Davao del Norte are wary on what is described as “escalating crimes” happening in the province. 

On Monday’s session on the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, Board Member Ernesto Evangelista raised the issue on increasing crime incidents in the province and reminded colleagues on the provincial government’s giving of motorcycles to the provincial police.

Vice Governor Victorio Suaybaguio, Jr.  informed the body that the SP has given seven units of single motorcycles to the provincial police  “as our small initiative in our quest for peace.”
He urged board members to give each a motorcycle to the police to be funded out from their priority fund allocation.

But Board Member Raymond Joey Millan wanted that the matter be brought up to the governor and particularly at the Provincial Peace and Order Council.

Millan moved to invite provincial police superintendent PSSupt. Samuel Gadingan in their next session to shed light on the latest holdup-hostaging incident in Makulay restaurant, where a cop hostage-taker was killed.

There are reports that carnapping of single motorcycles and holdup incidents have been increasing in Tagum City since the recent months. (Rural Urban News/Cha Monforte)
