Most wanted persons in Ifugao arrested

Recent achievements made by the police provincial force combined with local units were highlighted as outstanding due to the successful arrests of two top most wanted persons in the province. The fugitives arrested are both facing arrest warrants for the crime of rape with no bail recommended. 
Philippines' Most Wanted Persons
The first fugitive is a small-scale gold ore mill manager, 52, and a native of Poblacion, Hingyon. He was arrested in Runruno, Nueva Vizcaya through a joint patrol by the Ifugao public safety company led by police chief inspector Allan Guyguyon and Ifugao provincial intelligence branch led by police inspector Ramon Espiritu, Jr.
The second fugitive is a farmer, 42, and a resident of Duit, Kiangan. The arrest was made possible by a composite team from Kiangan municipal police station led by police inspector Christian Salonga and Lamut municipal police station led by senior police officer Luciano Mangulad.
These developments would further attest that no one is above the law; that if the law is to be observed at all times through vigilance and respect for humanity.#jbnii

One-step further for a business-friendly Ifugao

How to start a small business
With the increasing population of the province, it is high time to develop other means of earning money while keeping in mind the promotion of local products available in the 11 towns of Ifugao. As a common knowledge to all Ifugaos, working in the public sector provides low employment percentage compared to the private industry. Also, securing a job in the government is as slim and rigid due to traditional bureaucratic and political practices that has yet to be reformed. Recent economic accomplishments in the province will give opportunities for business-minded people to promote and further enhance their products and services. The promotion of a more customer-friendly province was further initiated by the Department of Trade and Industry through the establishments of CWDs(Consumer Welfare Desks) in some specific locations to cater with the demands of SMEs(Small and Medium Enterprises) including business amateurs and professionals. These CWDs can be found in Poblacion, Banaue at Dreamer's grocery; Poblacion East, Lagawe at IGEMPCO (Lagawe branch); and Poblacion West, Lamut at Lagsadeco Store, NMart gen.mdse., and IGEMPCO (Lamut branch). The aims of CWDs include easier resolution of consumer complaints and an avenue to promote business opportunities. In general, it aims to protect the rights and priveleges of consumers and business owners for better and improved business transactions in the province. #IfugaoPost

Reducing stray animals in the capital town

Stray animals in the Philippines
The Local Government Unit (LGU) of Lagawe, Ifugao has imposed fees and penalties on impounded stray animals. This is in pursuant to the municipality's goal of reducing unwanted animals particularly dogs roaming around the town center causing unsanitary environment and worse, carrying rabies. In a report submitted to PIA, owners whose animals are caught astray and have incurred damages to properties shall pay the fee of PhP200 for the first offense, PhP400 for the second offense, and PhP500 for the third offense (including payment of damages incurred by the astray animal). Let us hope for the success of this policy though it is a big challenge ahead considering cultural backgrounds and social behavior differences. What do you have in mind about this issue?
