PRO8 Pushes 100% Two-Storey Standard Type Building Police Stations in EV
Camp Kangleon, Palo, Leyte- The Police Regional Office 8 (PRO8), under the stewardship of Eastern Visayas Police Director, PBGEN DIONARDO B CARLOS pushes to have a 100 percent attack-resilient Two-Storey Standard Type Building for Police Stations in the region.
The Two-Storey Standard Type Building with roof deck is the new design for police stations of the Philippine National Police. It has a floor area of more or less 288 sq. m. with a dimension of 12mx8m. The best feature of this building is its roof deck, where police personnel can observe their immediate vicinity from above. The building costs at around P 4.8 million.
Presently, PRO8 has a total of 146 police stations and 8 City Police and Provincial Offices all over EV. Of the 146, 102 police stations are already occupying the new standard type building; 32 others are still under construction; and 22 remaining units are still using the old standard type building or without the standard type PNP building.
In the recent attack by CTs in Victoria Municipal Police Station, Northern Samar, they victoriously defended their station from its rooftop. “It really served its purpose combined with the bravery of its police personnel led by PLT ELADIO D ALO during the attack by more or less 50 CTs last March 28, 2019. Let this bravery mark the kind of police personnel we have in Eastern Visayas. I call on the remaining 22 LGUs to donate lots as their share in the construction these buildings,” Carlos urged.
