Region 3’s top cop: Nueva Ecija has ‘pressing issues’ as election nears
Among the provinces in Region 3, Nueva Ecija may be facing serious election-related troubles, according to the director of the Central Luzon police.
A Punto Central Luzon report quoted Police Regional Office 3 director Brig. Gen. Matthew Baccay as saying that Nueva Ecija was the province so far with the most “pressing issues” in connection with the 2022 national and local elections.
According to the report, Baccay spoke with police chiefs in his jurisdiction and emphasized the police’s two main functions: crime prevention and crime solution.
He also reminded the cops to maintain neutrality while keeping the peace in the region.
Baccay told his subordinates that having preference for a certain candidate will result in trouble, according to a Punto Central Luzon report.
“If there is preference to a candidate over the other, diyan mag-uumpisa ang away,” he was quoted as saying.
