Negros CIS gets award

The Community Investigative Support-Negros Occidental (Espading) chapter was among the Ten Outstanding CIS Partners of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group honored during its first National Summit recently in Cebu City.

The CIS volunteers of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group were instrumental in the neutralization of most-wanted criminals in the country and in the solution to high-profile crimes and seizure of illegal weapons.

Through the help of CIS volunteers, the CIDG recently arrested one of the suspects in the killing of broadcaster Neil “Lito” Jimena in Isabela, Negros Occidental, Senior Supt. Eddie Benigay, CIDG regional officer of Western Visayas said.

The membership of CIS, described as “unsung heroes” in the campaign against criminality, has grown to 20,000, and include more than 400 volunteers in Negros Occidental, CIDG records show.

Joseph Nazareno of Negros Occidental was among the TOCP awardees, with the province CIS tied with Laguna in the search for best CIS provincial chapter.
