Anti Illegal Firearms in Bohol Philippines

Bohol Provincial Police Office (BPPO) accounted a total of 1096 fire-arms in its drives since August to September to top all the regional police offices in the implementation of the National Firearms Control Program (NFCP) or Bilang Boga, data from the Central Visayas Regional Police Office revealed.

Meanwhile Cebu Provincial Police Office beat BPPO in active anti-illegal firearms interdiction operations or operation Kontra Boga net when it accounted for 433 in the last four months of operations.
 
Operations Bilang Boga and Kontra Boga are active police operations to account and recover the estimated forty nine thousand one hundred thirty six loose firearms in line with the NFCP.
 
It also brought down the final gun registration and licensing amnesty to advance the government's desire to get loose firearms which often end up being used in criminal activities.

The number for BPPO was 25.90 percent of the estimated 4,232 loose firearms from threat groups and criminal elements or those basically un-renewed in the last years, explains PInspector John Gano, Camp Dagohoy Information Officer.

While topping the charts in Bilang Boga operations, or accounting for the loose firearms, Bohol garnered third place in the operation Kontra Boga or the anti-loose fire-arms interdiction operations
 
BPPO police operatives only accounted 44 firearms during the same period.
 
BPPO contended with Cebu Provincial Police Office, Cebu City Police Office, Lapulapu City Police Office, Mandaue City Police Office, Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office and Siquijor Provincial Police Office.
 
Over the achievement, outgoing police director PSsupt Edgardo Ingking said he was just happy that his men delivered and seriously cascaded the national gun amnesty campaign in their areas.
 
Ranking next to Bohol in Bilang Boga Operation is Siquijor Provincial Police Station, the province with the least criminality ratio in Central Visayas.
 
Siquijor scored seventy two firearms, all of them unrenewed in the last years over the estimated three hundred thirty seven loose fire arms in the island
 
In Central Visayas, Cebu Province has the most number of loose firearms at 14,143, followed by Cebu City at 13,585.  

However, Cebu City and Cebu Provincial Offices only managed to score 15.27 and a measly 3.79 percent respectively.
 
For operation Bilang Boga, following Bohol and Siquijor are Cebu City Police Office, Manadue City Police Office, Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office, Cebu Provincial Police Office and Lapulapu City Police Office.
 
In Kontra Boga, tailing Cebu Provincial Police Office is Cebu City Police Office, Bohol Provincial Police Office, Siquijor Provincial Police Office, Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office while both Lapulapu City and Mandaue City Police offices score even at sixth. (PIA)

Panglao Bohol International Airport Update

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) has endorsed Gov. Erico Aumentado's request to frontload the 2010 budget for the Panglao Bohol International Airport to 2009.
  In a letter to Budget and Management Secretary Rolando Andaya, DOTC Secretary Leandro Mendoza favorably endorsed Aumentado's request seeking the frontloading, citing among other reasons, that 2010 is an election year.
  As such, Aumentado had explained, Congress might not be able to approve on time the calendar year 2010 General Appropriations Act (GAA), giving the country no other choice but to operate on a reenacted budget.
  A reenacted budget would jeopardize the airport project, the governor pointed out, because the 2009 budget carries only P307.5 million for the airport. The balance of the amount that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo earlier approved for DOTC to come up with stands at P690,971,398 for a total allocation needed of P998,471,398.
