CITY OF ZAMBOANGA – The Zamboanga Peninsula Regional Police Office (PRO-9) is strengthening its law enforcement operations in different parts of the region this year 9.
Brig. Gen. Franco Simbrio, director of PRO-9, on Monday deployed 217 members of the Regional Mobile Force Battalion (RMFB-9) to serve as an augmentation force in strengthening the law enforcement operations of the various units of line of command.
PRO-9 covers the provinces of Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga Sibugay, as well as the cities of Isabela and Zamboanga.
Simbrio reminded the RMFB-9 personnel at the farewell ceremony to do their best in the performance of their duties at their duty stations.
“Your work attitude, your track record and your reputation for service say a lot about you,” Simbrio said.
“The public has high expectations that we can successfully maintain peace and order in our duty stations,” he added.
The RMFB-9 serves as the maneuver and combat force of the PRO-9. The unit is ready to be deployed at any time to any part of the region.
Simbrio said they will focus on law enforcement operations which include the campaign against bulk guns, crime syndicates, the fight against illegal drugs and the fight against smuggling.
The focus on law enforcement operations is Simbrio’s first marching order to police forces this year in the region. (ANP)
