Based on its impressive accomplishments, the Laoag Police Station (LPS) had conducted at least 60 successful police operations against criminality in Laoag City including 20 illegal drug buy-bust operations, 11 search warrants and one murder case solved during the January-June 2014 period.
“The INPPO considered the Laoag Police Station as the Best Police Station in Ilocos Norte, Senior Supt. Antonio Mendoza Jr., acting police provincial director, told reporters.
OIC Police Chief Gorospe said he credited the help of BPAT, Bantay Bayan, Guardian and fraternities as multipliers that contributed to the success of police visibility in the city.
