NATIONAL Capital Region Police Office director Major General Guillermo Lorenzo T. Eleazar yesterday lauded the Southern Police District headed by Brigadier General Eliseo DC Cruz for its innovative Oplan: Brigada Presinto which aims to clean and rehabilitate different Police-Community Precincts in Taguig, Makati, Pasay, Muntinlupa, Parañaque, Las Piñas and Pateros.
“This is a program which I believe should be replicated all over Metro Manila as part of our ongoing cleanliness program vis-à-vis our no-nonsense internal cleansing drive,” Eleazar told the Journal Group in an interview at Camp Crame.
Already on their third day, Cruz is leading his police chiefs and PCP commanders and their men, backed up by troops from the SPD District Mobile Force Battalion and the District Headquarters Support Unit in repainting or repairing their facilities.
The Oplan: Brigada Presinto of the SPD patterned after the Oplan: Balik Eskwela in which teachers and parents join hands in cleaning and repainting classrooms of government-run schools in the country, has seen SPD personnel repainting their PCPs with the standard police ‘white and blue’ apart from thoroughly cleaning them literally inside and out.
“This is in line with Gen. Eleazar’s exaggerated cleanliness campaign. We really want to turn our PCPs and other precincts into police facilities which are pleasing to the eyes, all conducive for working apart from being a citizen-friendly place in particular to our guests and walk-in complainants,” Cruz said.
