Everyone is dreaming they were on the beach right now looking at the beautiful scenery, watching sunsets in the seashore, or even relaxing in a small nipa hut hearing the splashing of the waves. Who wouldn’t love that experience? But unfortunately, summer outings this 2020 were canceled due to the pandemic. But Culasi PNP in the province of Antique says that you don’t need to be at the beach to get your dose of the summer that never happened!
Regional Director Brigadier General Rene Pamuspusan of Police Regional Office 6 initiated the ‘Project Banlaw’ where police officers are encouraged to make their police stations neat and clean. As part of this project, Police Captain Bryan Ignacio Alamo of Culasi PNP thought of redesigning their station in a unique and attractive way. As you enter the police station, the tropical vibe interior will embrace you, as a beautifully designed island-scape greet guests. You will be welcomed by a landscaped garden, murals, and a Nipa hut. At night, chandeliers made of Capiz shells are lighted, giving you the complete resort look! The Bayanihan hut that serves as the receiving area was made of recycled materials and donations from the residents of Culasi.
This was spearheaded last April by PCapt. Alamo who always redesigns the police stations where he is assigned. “We are trying to improve talaga ang situation ng station natin and at the same time kasi malaking factor to na ma develop din po ang efficiency at trabaho ng mga police sa station natin kasi nakakapag high morale po,” says PCapt. Alamo.
This was a collaborative effort of Culasi PNP, the LGU, and the residents. Violators of the Executive Order of Antique Governor with regards to the protocols during COVID-19 helped in the development of the station and was also paid for the work that they rendered “Conducive police station also promotes a good relationship with our stakeholders and the community as a whole for it projects a community and tourist-friendly environment,” says Alamo.
