The CSP teams will be deployed in barangays Danao, I.S.

In his message, Mayor Redentor S. Jardin underscored the importance of proper and adequate coordination between and among the militaty, police and government agencies to win the war on insurgency.

Meanwhile, Lt. Col. Canatoy said: “CSP operations are one of the Philippine Army’s means to help our local government unit in identifying the issues and concerns of the local populace in the far-flung areas. Through CSP, we can address the peace and security concerns of the communities and in collaboration with the LGUs we can deliver effective basic government services. Also, we can bring the government closer to the people.”

“This activity symbolizes our unity in the attainment of genuine peace and development of our country and making it as conflict resilient community,” Lt.Col. Canatoy stressed. (58IB)
