City of San Fernando Police chief Supt. Jean Fajardo thanked the governor for helping them materialize their dream of having their own station.

The P13-million City of San Fernando Police Station building will be the new house of police personnel and officers situated in Maimpis, CSFP.

“This lot was initially intended for the PRO3 but it was too small for the said office, that is why former regional police chief Rudy Lacadin asked Governor Pineda to allocate the lot as the site for the City of San Fernando Police Station,” she said.

She also vowed to better their services to pay back the generosity of the governor for giving them the two-storey building funded by Philippine National Police (PNP).

“This will inspire the employees and staff of PNP-San Fernando because we already have a station more conducive for work and more comfortable for PNP personnel to work daily. I would like to assure everyone that by giving us this new station, we are committed to give you a better, capable and effective police force for the whole province of Pampanga,” Fajardo told the attendees in a ceremony.

Mayor Santiago also lauded the governor for her efforts in improving the facilities and infrastructure in local government and police offices in the province.
