District 2 Councilor Roel 'Elong' Natividad has started to go on a wider scale in terms of campaigning against unabated criminalities, as well as looking at certain factors to serve as crime deterrent in Zamboanga City.
Natividad, who formally assumed as chairman of both city council's peace and order and anti-illegal drugs committees last July 3 have been going around day and night alongside newly-seated Mayor Beng Climaco, checking on the city's peace and order.
“I am also under orders of Mayor Beng, to see to it that authorities, especially beat policemen are doing their job well, so that criminals will not have easy access in doing their nefarious activities in the city”, Natividad said.
Natividad added that there are even times wherein he and Mayor Climaco would chance upon some of these beat cops, texting, or chatting with fellow colleagues while on duty.
“Si ta cuhi kame con estos maga lousy pulis, ensigidas canila ta ordena si Mayor Beng, para reporta ala manyana na city hall, donde canila ta man lecture el alcaldeza”, Natividad said.
Natividad, is also contemplating on revisiting some enabling ordinances, to make its use more effective and efficient.
“Uno del nesesita kita chekya, amo si debe ba gayod permiti usa aqui na sentro del ciudad este maga full-faced helmet, o permiti con maga driver de maga motorsiklo de tapar con di ila maga cara pormedio de maga scarp o panyo ora de manejada”, Natividad lamented.
The topnotch 2nd district councilor also plans to suggest to Climaco to consider in its next acquisition, much modern closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, “aquel tipo high definition, porcausa que este maga ya compra antes, y establisao ya na diferente maga lugar na pueblo, ni hinde claro el cara del maga hente”.
At the same time, Natividad plans to make more useful the barangay tanods and members of the Barangay Intelligence Network (BIN) to serve as force multipliers in the city's crime-fighting campaign.
“I am so glad that other law enforcement entities, like Task Force Zamboanga under Col. Andrelino Colina and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), led by its regional director, Supt. Adzar Albani, have unequivocally, expressed their support on my advocacy against criminality”, Natividad said.
Meanwhile, sensing risk on all that he is doing at present, Natividad confirmed having requested from newly-designated city police officer-in-charge, Sr. Supt Jose Chiquito Malayo, security personnel who would protect him in his daily roving activities.
