Tawi-Tawi Police Provincial Director urges people to cooperate on intensified campaign vs criminals


TAWI-TAWI PROVINCE – A top-official of the Philippine National Police in this province has urged the people to cooperate in the police intensified campaign against criminal activities, as well as during the monthlong celebration of Kamahardikaan.

Kamahardikaan, which means “freedom”, signifies the birth of Tawi-Tawi province, which was separated from Sulu province on Sept. 27, 1973.

“Makikiusap lang po tayo sa ating mamamayan to cooperate so that the celebration of “Kamahardikaan Sin Tawi-Tawi” will be generally peaceful,” Provincial Director Richard Basco said.

He said the people’s cooperation is very vital in maintaining the peace and order most especially during the monthlong celebration of Kamahardikaan.

“Yun lang po inuulit ko, cooperasyon lang po ang kinakailangan natin para maging maayos po ang ating lungsod ng Bongao kung saan ginaganap ngayon
ang Kamahardikaan,” Basco said.


“Dito po sa probinsiya ng Tawi-Tawi ay kinakasa na po natin ang mga bagong traffic management plan dahil problema po talaga dito sa Lunsod ng Bongao ang traffic kapag may mga kaganapan tulad nitong Kamahardikaan. Ito talaga ang pinakamalaking problema ngayon dito sa Bongao ang traffic.

He said despite the developments in Bongao town, the roads are still small as comapared to other developed municipalities in Mindanao. “Maliliit talaga ang mga daan kaya may traffic problem talaga dahil may activities.”


He said although there are still drug problems but very minimal and manageable as compared to other places in the country. Drugs, he said, are no longer a big problem in Tawi-Tawi.

But Director also said there were arrests in the past in regards to the drug menace but only small cases and it’s not alarming.


Dir Basco said during the barangay elections this coming October 30, the provincial police command will have an adjustment as how the SK and Barangay Elections will be managed.

Generally, the provincial dirctor said, the conduct of the elections in Tawi-Tawi will be peaceful. “Nakagawa na kami ng plano at naka initial deploy na kami ng mga units ng police, army, marines, at lahat ng mga security forces naka deploy na on the ground,” Basco concluded.
