VILLASIS- The Federation of Villasis Tricycles Operators and Drivers Association (FVTODA) headed Noel Castillo entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Villasis Police Station (VPS) led by Chief Inspector Jesus O. Manalo Jr. to be a partner in ensuring peace and order in the town.
The MOA signing was held inside the VPS last December 18 and witnessed by the various leaders of the TODA. The parties agreed to bind themselves ” to become partners in training, empowering and guiding the tricycle drivers to become law abiding citizens and to be equipped with knowledge that are useful in combating all forms of illegal activities in their respective communities.”
“The MOA with the tricycle operators and drivers was undertaken to support us in preserving peace and order and in addressing security concerns in our town. This is part of our community relation efforts for the citizenry to participate in the peace keeping efforts of the town,” Manalo said.
Manalo said the signing of the MOA was just in time for the Christmas season and the town fiesta celebration in January next year.
” The unity and efforts of this police station with the TODA will ensure a reliable and continuing support for the safety of the townspeople,” Manalo said.
Meanwhile, police officers of this town are regularly conducting “Pulong-pulong sa Barangay”, the latest of which was held in San Blas village, to discuss about the Republic Act No. 9262 or the Barangay Protection Order Act and Republic Act No. 9165.
Manalo is known for his no-nonsense operation drive against the proliferation of illegal drugs in the town.
He was awarded by the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) for his biggest apprehension of illegal drugs (shabu) at 104.5 grams.
