BARBARA, ILOILO, June 10 -- Four hundred ninety-nine men and women of Iloilo Province formally swore undying commitment in support to Oplan Lambat Sibat of the Philippine National Police during the Oath-Taking Ceremony held at Iloilo Police Provincial Office earlier today.

This is why their cooperation and support to this program of the PNP is sought. IPPO continues to recruit more volunteers in our aim to steadfastly solve crimes and eventually make Iloilo a peaceful province,” adds Alba.
