Last week; PRO 11 was able to present seven (7) surrenderees which only shows its dedication and commitment in helping the members of CTGs who wish to go back to the fold of the government.
PRO 11 through Regional Director, PBGEN FILMORE B ESCOBAL is always been consistent in contributing to the desire of the government to help the CTGs who are willing to turn their back from the CPP-NPA which was materialized through Revitalized Pulis sa Barangay Projects, which is now being recognized by Chief, PNP PGen Guillermo T Eleazar as a strategic program to eradicate the remnants of communist insurgency and terrorism.
The continuous surrender of different CTGs in the different parts of the Region proves that the effort of this PRO in Ending the Local Communist Armed Conflict is successful. Furthermore, it also reflects that the R-PSB program of PRO 11 is indeed doing its job in slowly putting an end to an insurgency by delivering the government services to the doorstep of the people and even in the farthest barangays of the Davao region.
