A text hotline that enables Laguna residents to air their concerns to the provincial police was launched at Kampo Heneral Paciano Rizal in Barangay Bagumbayan in Sta. Cruz, acting provincial director Senior Supt. Joel Pernito announced.
The hotline, “Ibato Mo, Txt Mo sa Pulis Laguna” is a 24/7 text service that allows citizens to report crimes and the whereabouts of suspects to specified numbers of the provincial headquarters and concerned police stations that will act on complaints particularly about drug users and pushers under the anti-drug campaign “Double Barrel.”
The provincial police released four mobile phone numbers under different network providers. They are Globe: 0995-0065793, Smart: 0908-1557899, Sun: 0943-4511118 and Talk & Text: 0950-1147646. By using these numbers, the concerned public can send text message for free using Unli Text promo.
The Laguna PPO said their text service does not intend to clash with the “Text Bato” hotline project of the PNP but to support its goal of significantly enhancing the PNP’s readiness to address the public’s police concerns and improve the peace and order situation in the province.
Personnel on duty at the Provincial Tactical Operation Center will immediately transmit messages to the unit/station concerned and copy furnish the staff duty officer and the officer of the day and the result of action taken for their information and reference. All messages will be stored on the data bank/computer exclusively for the purpose.
