The Gumaca Task Force or Bantay Bayan was created through a Municipal Ordinance authored by then Councilor Dr. Elchor Caralian. Now a Vice Mayor and Chairman of PNP Gumaca’s Municipal Advisory Council, he makes sure Bantay Bayan’s operations are sustained and supported with the necessary logistics. After all, these brave men and women roaming our streets every night while most of us are sleeping help maintain peace and order in our communities.
Mayor Erwin Caralian likewise guarantee that they are given due importance for the volunteer work they are doing. Thus, additional uniforms were distributed by the Municipal Administrator which they can use when patrolling for their easy identification. In his message, the Administrator thanked the Task Force members for partnering with the LGU as its force multipliers without expecting anything in return except to offer their voluntary services. Admin also expressed his appreciation to Mr. Paps Nera who through outgoing MESPO Nelson Labis sponsored these new uniforms.
