MANILA, July 5 — Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) head Director Samuel D. Pagdilao and Davao City Vice-Mayor Rodrigo Duterte formally led the blessing and inauguration of the newly renovated CIDG regional office building in the locality Thursday morning.

Pagdilao thanked Duterte, the local government units in Davao province, the non-government organizations (NGOs) and the members of Community Investigative Support (CIS) in Region 11 who have given their support to the renovation of the CIDG's regional office.

He said the newly-renovated CIDG office is a testament to the healthy working relationship CIDG 11 chief, Senior Supt. Albert Ignatius Ferro, has established with the local government as well as the active participation of NGOs and the CIS in complementing the effort of the CIDG to have a conducive working place for its personnel in Davao City.

Pagdilao said the renovation, which has cost more than P600,000, will give way to a high sense of decency and will certainly uplift the morale of the CIDG personnel in Davao.

He also stressed to CIDG personnel the need for an aggressive campaign against loose firearms in Region 11. The blessing will coincide with the oath taking of 100 new members of CIS in Davao City.

Pagdilao said a stepped-up campaign against loose firearms must be implemented in Davao region as deterrence to the possible rise of firearms related crime incidents in Mindanao as the country braces for the upcoming 2013 midterm elections.

The CIDG chief urged CIS volunteers in Davao to continuously provide them with information that will lead operatives in locating places where illegal firearms are being kept to deny partisan armed groups with the access to weapons and other tools to intimidate voters and influence the outcome of the elections.

Pagdilao also lauded the CIS in Davao for their contributions to the success of the CIDG in its drive against most wanted persons and in the neutralization of criminal gangs in the region. (PNA)
