CAMP MARCELO A. ADDURU, TUGUEGARAO CITY – The first ever all-women City Mobile Force Company (CMFC) of the Philippine National Police (PNP) was launched by the Police Regional Office 2 in its efforts to uphold women empowerment in the police force.
Regional Director PRO2 Brig. Gen. Angelito Casimiro and Col. Juan Aggacid, City Director, SCPO, led the ceremonial turn-over and launching of the CMFC which will be headed by Maj. Abigail Bautista.
Casimiro said the first ever all-women CMFC is tasked mainly to focus on the conduct of anti-criminality and insurgency campaign, beat patrol, and carry out information advocacy program and initiatives.
“Kayo ay mga frontliners na may espesyal na misyon, but, let us not stop here. You have to continue honing your skills and updating your knowledge for you to be able to render more effective and efficient public service. Dapat gawin ninyong inspirasyon na kabilang kayo sa all-women City Mobile Force Company to earn your place not only as public servants but also as women whose hearts cater and minds matter,” he added.
Bautista expressed gratitude for entrusting her with the leadership of the CMFC. Members of the CMFC will undergo training on Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT), Search and Rescue operations, Civil Disturbance Management (CDM), and Internal Security Operations refresher courses.
The Santiago City CMFC will occupy the old SCPO Building which is co-located in Santiago City Police Office.
