DAVAO CITY--The Police Regional Office-11 (PRO-11) is building a new home for the Regional Mobile Force Battalion inside the Camp Quintin Merecido in Catitipan, Buhangin, this city.
The laying of the time capsule and groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday afternoon marked the start of the construction of the building worth PHP27 million, funded under the national budget of the Philippine National Police (PNP) with a counterpart from the local government units in Davao Region.
PRO-11 director Chief Supt. Manuel Gaerlan, who led the event, said the RMFB building is one of the many projects being implemented by the PRO-11 under his leadership.
Gaerlan, who is retiring next month, will also ground break the construction of the Sta. Cruz Municipal Police Station later this month.
He said other new police stations will also be inaugurated before he bows out of service, such as the ones in Governor Generoso in Davao Oriental, Don Marcelino in Davao Occidental, as well as the Bagani Hall located at the entrance gate of PRO-11.
“This legacy has paved the way for sophisticated and standard police facilities to bring out the best working condition and excellent public service,” Gaerlan said.
