ASSESSMENT A favorable peace and order condition is expected to remain in the province for the next period. While it is true that the CPP/NPA have continued to step-up their armed struggle in other parts of the country, LUPPO has remained vigilant and has already assumed the active role in the fight against insurgency, through the conduct of more combat operations by our PMG in areas where sightings have been reported.

Likewise, all other efforts such as the proposed establishment of special CAFGUS in the three critical towns in the province have been initiated. This is being done in close collaboration with the local chief executives concerned and the AFP (503rd infantry brigade). On criminality, the decrease in the crime volume for the period particularly on index crimes can be attributed to the increased police presence. With the various security and crime prevention measures now in place coupled with the increased and active participation of the community, we are optimistic that we are heading towards the realization of the common objective of peacekeeping that will in effect contribute to the socio-economic growth in the province.
