Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez Gets Another Award

Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez received a plaque of recognition during the Culminating Activity of the 24th Police Community Relations Month, which is anchored on the theme “Sambayanan, Mahalagang Kaakibat ng Kapulisan sa Pagtaguyod ng Mapayapa at Maunlad na Bayan,” on Monday, July 29, at the National Capital Region Office Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan, Taguig City.

The National Police Commission chose the husband of Congresswoman Lucy Torres-Gomez as the sole Local Chief Executive in the Eastern Visayas Region who made a significant contribution to the successful promotion and implementation of the Community and Service-Oriented Policing (CSOP) System. Mayor Richard Gomez, according to the citation, also “sustained good partnership among local executives, community, and improvement of peace and order.”

For starters, the National Police Commission (NAPOLCOM) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) are pursuing the CSOP System to strengthen the police-people partnership and enhance system of coordination and cooperation among the citizenry, local executives, and the integrated law enforcement and public safety agencies for effective delivery of basic services to the community.

To recall, Philippine National Police named Ormoc City as the safest city in the Philippines in May 2018, which was based on the PNP Crime Research and Analysis Center’s research conducted in the first quarter of the said calendar year. At the time, there were only 134 crime incidents recorded in #theCityofBeautifulPeople.

PSSupt. Noel Sandoval stated one factor that contributes to the low crime rate in the area is the active involvement of the police and residents within the community. “They report [crimes] to the police that’s why it gets recorded. If they don’t go to the police, there would be no record of the crime,” PNP’s Crime Research and Analysis Center chief said in Cebuano.
