ILOILO CITY – The new top cop of Capiz assured Friday, July 23, that he will continue the Bayanihan project in which police units build homes for the less privileged.

Police Col. Laudemer Llaneta said he will find a way to continue the home-building project of Police Col. Julio Gustilo Jr., his predecessor as Capiz Police Provincial Office (CPPO) chief.

“It is very possible and the heart for the people will be there,” Llaneta said after the turnover of command ceremony in Roxas City, the capital of Capiz. “I know about building houses. My background is civil engineering,” said Llaneta.

Gustilo and his staff came up with the Bahay at Kabuhayan Nila Handog Namin or Bayanihan project which has built homes for the poor families in Capiz.

Aside from the home-building projects, Llaneta also assured that he will go after environmental violators. “Capiz is the seafood capital. We should protect our natural resources,” Llaneta added.

Present at the turnover ceremony were Capiz Gov. Esteban Evan Contreras II and Police Brig. Gen. Rolando Miranda, director of Police Regional Office (PRO-6).
