Globe Telecom turned over to the CCPO 17 laptops, 17 printers, 20 home prepaid WiFi sets, and a GCash kiosk.

Apart from Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards that come with free loads, the company also donated tents, tables, and chairs that will be used by CCPO in strategic checkpoint areas.

The company likewise assured to help CCPO for its information dissemination campaign.

“We actually have this text blast system from Globe where we can use to promote…to have that particular ease and convenience information dissemination aside of course of the merchandising support that we will continue to give to CCPO,” said Adonis Evangelista, the company’s regional head for sales.

Police Col. Josefino Ligan, chief of CCPO, said with the info dissemination system, the public, especially Globe subscribers, will receive CCPO-related updates.

Text blast will include reminders to follow health protocols, said Ligan.

“Today, as CCPO accepts your kindness and generosity, we felt more empowered and driven to better serve our community. These equipment will greatly help us in our daily operations and in providing effective, efficient and quality services to the people,” said Ligan.

Police Brig. Gen. Ronnie Montejo, chief of the Police Regional Office-Central Visayas (PRO 7), said the items that the CCPO received will be a big help especially in the campaign against COVID-19.

“We are grateful for the kindness while we face the unseen foe in this difficult time,” Montejo said.
