Zambo mayor appointed anew as RPOC head, gets pat on the shoulder from Duterte for job well-done

MAYOR BENG CLIMACO thanked President Rodrigo Duterte for re-appointing her as chairperson of the Zamboanga Peninsula Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) and citing her “steadfast commitment to security.”

Climaco took her oath along with other RPOC officers before President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang which was also attended by top national executives and members of the National peace and Order Council (NPOC).

The RPOC is a sub-national council and serves to provide a forum for dialogue and deliberation of major issues and problems affecting peace and order, including emergency, and recommend measures which will improve or enhance peace and order, and public safety in their respective areas of responsibility, including anti-insurgency measures and to initiate or oversee the convergence and orchestration of internal security operations efforts of civil authorities and agencies military and police among others.

Climaco was first appointed by Duterte in January 2017 succeeding then Dipolog Mayor Evelyn Uy as RPOC head. Since her election and assumption as the city’s chief executive in 2013, Climaco adapted security as her priority agenda through her flagship program Security, Health and Education.

Her administration has allocated some P1.2 billion for the security sector over the last 5 years. She provided the police and military patrol vehicles, firearms and ammunition, sea crafts, communication equipment and facilities, fuel, allowances and other forms of assistance in support to their mandates.

In a meeting with the Regional Development Council in Zamboanga Sibugay’s Ipil town in June, Climaco bannered the RPOC accomplishments and stressed that under her leadership the RPOC has become a platform to harmonize initiatives geared towards peace and development in Zamboanga Peninsula.
