MANILA, Philippines — The Makati government has commended the city police for being the top police department last month in terms of performance in southern Metro Manila.

Citing a report from the Southern Police District, Mayor Abigail Binay said the Makati police ranked first among the SPD’s seven police stations with an overall score of 94.78 percent for implementing programs of the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Binay said the local police also ranked first for three consecutive months, from July to September and second in October.

“This feat is another proof of the hard work of our police force. I believe that with their relentless efforts, Makati will remain a peaceful and secure place for everyone,” Binay said in a statement.

The mayor said she is proud to have dedicated police officers protecting the city by acting as a formidable barrier against crime.

The PNP uses the unit performance evaluation rating system to measure the efficiency of police departments.

Makati police chief Col. Edward Cutiyog said 89 suspected drug pushers and users were arrested in 53 anti-narcotics operations from Nov. 1 to 30.

Cutiyog said 106 people were apprehended for illegal gambling and 5,878 others for violating city ordinances such as the curfew policy, traffic rules, drinking in public, smoking in non-designated areas, urinating in public places and littering.

Police also apprehended 46 fugitives, including five on the Top 10 most wanted list of the SPD.

Binay vowed to support the city police force and provide them with the necessary resources and training.

She urged residents and workers in Makati to be vigilant and report suspicious persons and illegal activities in the city.
