THE chief of the Cagayan de Oro City Police Office (Cocpo) has vowed to beef up intelligence gathering initiatives to deter crimes following the series of robbery incidents and other forms of criminality in the city.
Cocpo director Colonel Aaron Mandia said a conference will be scheduled to meet the intelligence community and other law enforcement agencies.
He said a close coordination and collaboration with the intelligence community is necessary to get feedback and map out new strategies to curb criminality.
Mandia added that the local police are monitoring those who were released from jail and those who availed the government's plea bargaining agreement.
"Isa din sa minomitor natin ang bagong laya kaya mayroon tayong coordination sa jail regarding sa profile nila,"Mandia said.
The Cocpo chief clarified that the series of robbery incidents may not be connected or carried out by an organized group.
Mandia also maintained that the police are doing its duties to ensure peace and order in the city.
"Di natin masabi na may lapses ang kapolisan kasi ginagawa ng police ang lahat. Ang binabantayan lang talaga ng mga criminal ay ating police,"he said.
