“Kahit sa mga oras na ito na nakikipaglaban ang ating bansa laban sa pandemya, ang lakas ng pulisya ay magpapatuloy na paigtingin ang kampanya laban sa lahat ng uri ng kriminalidad lalo na sa pagsusugal na nagdudulot ng pagkalat at nag-aambag ng isang malaking kadahilanan sa lumalalang kondisyon dahilan sa banta ng COVID- 19” said Macaraeg.

(Even in these times when our country is fighting the pandemic, the police force will continue to intensify the campaign against all forms of crime especially illegal gambling, which is causing the spread and a contributing major factor to the worsening conditions due to the threat of COVID- 19.)
