ANGELES CITY --- "Padlock when you park" signs were posted in front of establishments to warn motorists to secure their respective motorcycles before leaving them in parking areas and along the streets.

This is in connection with the Lambat Bitag, an intensified anti-criminality campaign the city police implemented recently.

Senior Superintendent Eden P. Ugale, city police director, said that criminality particularly robbery and theft has dramatically decreased since the implementation of Lambat Bitag.


The city Police Community Relations (PCR), headed by Superintendent Gemma Vinluan, initiated the posting of billboards bearing public warnings and telephone numbers of police stations.

Vinluan said they are encouraging citizens to report any incidents to the city police as well as to effect a citizen’s arrest if an individual or a group committed a crime.

During a recent briefing at the Holy Angel University (HAU), which was attended by businessmen and barangay officials, the city PCR distributed specially-shaped leaflets stating the modus operandi of criminal elements, facts about child and women abuse and other vital information.

Some of the police hotlines are 888 6731, 322 0771, 0908 377 0144, and 0923 880 0547.

Ugale directed chiefs of all the six police stations to continue implementing Lambat Bitag, which basically covers beat patrol, checkpoints, police visibility, coordination with barangay officials, information drive and others.
