Angeles City – Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan will expropriate Camp Tomas Pepito from the Catholic Church, according to his close aide.

Angeles City Communications Officer, Jose “Jay” Pelayo IV said the Angeles City Police Office will stay at the 174th or Camp Pepito, which is a property of the Catholic church.

Pelayo relayed the message when he keynotes the 23rd Police Community Relations Month at the ACPO. Pelayo was the Guest of Honor and Speaker during the event.

“The Angeles Police don’t need to worry about your stay at the 174th for Mayor Ed Pamintuan has informed me that he has a plan to expropriate the property,” Pelayo said.

It has been a concern for the local police here about their tenure at the Camp Tomas Pepito, which is known to be a property of the Catholic Church.

Pelayo added, “ACPO will stay here in Brgy. Sto. Domingo. And after the property has been expropriated, the city mayor wants to build a new headquarters for our PNP.”

City Director PSSupt. Enrico Vargas expressed his appreciation to the full support of the city government to the local police. Vargas has also informed his men and women in uniform about the purchasing of additional firearms by the city government including the purchasing of brandnew service vehicles for ACPO.

“I would like to express my appreciation to the support of the city government headed by our city mayor,” Vargas said in his message after the flag ceremony.

Just recently, Mayor Pamintuan led the inauguration of the bunk houses for the BJMP to help decongest the facility from overcrowding detainees. Pamintuan also led the opening of Bahay Pagbabago within the same compound.
