About 170 police officers, including 24 females, will start their 45-day anti-insurgency training at the Philippine National Police’s Camp Carballo in Barangay Nagbagang, Sta. Catalina town, Negros Oriental, today.

The Special Counter-insurgency Operations Unit Training will be the second for Negros Oriental, and the third for Region 7 for 2012, Senior Insp. Dexter Calacar, manager of the PNP Regional Special Training Unit 7, said.

The PNP SCOUT Class 31-2012 is composed of police officers from the Regional Public Safety Battalion, 13 females and one male from the Negros Oriental Provincial Police Office, and one from Bohol province, Calacar added.

Typhoon victims get
P27M shelter aid


The Department of Social Welfare and Development Region 7 distributed yesterday P27 million in Emergency Shelter Assistance to 2,883 families in Negros Oriental, who were affected by tropical storm “Sendong” last December 17.

The distribution was held simultaneously at the Negros Oriental Convention Center in Dumaguete City, and in Tanjay City.

The ESA and the Core Shelter Assistance Project funds aimed to address the shelter needs of displaced and homeless families, after “Sendong” severely affected the 10 towns and cities in Negros Oriental, Aileen Lariba of DSWD 7 said.

The Negros Oriental State University will celebrate its 8th Charter Day anniversary on June 25, to mark its conversion from the then Central Visayas Polytechnic College, to NORSU, through Republic Act 9299.
