Mayors of 2 Tarlac towns say zero inmates due to peace-loving people
The mayors of San Clemente and Santa Ignacia towns in the province of Tarlac are proud that the provincial jail has no recorded inmates from their localities in its detention facilities.
In a media forum, retired police Senior Supt. Elsa Miranda of the Tarlac Provincial Jail (TPJ) said the towns of San Clemente and Santa Ignacia have no recorded cases filed in any court from November 2016 to present.
The two towns have no district or local detention facilities, that’s why the local chief executives were elated with the news.
“We are lovers of peace. This is a good sign that we are leading toward the realization of our dream to achieve more development. I believe peace is a pre-requisite to progress,” said San Clemente Mayor Elma Macadamia.
Santa Ignacia Mayor Nora Modomo, meanwhile, said peace and orderliness are her top priorities, and such an achievement will serve as a challenge for them.
“We are committed to bring harmony to the community so that our people could live with ease in their minds,” Modomo said.
According to Miranda, this record could be because people in the two towns are“naturally kind and peace-loving” or “there are no cases forwarded or decided by a court” to detain suspects.
