In order to lead Central Luzon in sustaining peace and order,Hon. Hermogenes E. Ebdane, Jr., Governor and Peace and Order Council (POC) Chair of the Province of Zambales was appointed by President Rodrigo R. Duterte as the new Regional Peace and Order Council III (RPOC) Chairman.
Governor Ebdane, in his message, during the 4th Quarter Joint Provincial Peace and Order Council (PPOC) - Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council (PADAC) and Provincial Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (PTF-ELCAC) Meeting on November 26, 2019 at Balin Sambali, Iba, Zambales, said that approach of RPOC will be different in his administration.
“What I envisioned is something similar to an Intelligence Oplan, where we have specific target, determine the available logistics and based on the lessons learned, we come up with solutions and follow it up. We have to make it a point to have a regular monitoring of these projects later on. I hope that this will be used as a template by other provinces and regions” said Governor Ebdane on his plans as the new RPOC Chair.
The RPOC is the body that ensures a more comprehensive and effective coordination of government efforts and active participation of citizenry in the campaign against criminality and insurgency.
