Arugay, meanwhile, vowed to reach out to the community to help those people badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I appreciate the constant support of our stakeholders and commitment to the PNP organization. We will continue to balance and bridge the gap between the community and the police most especially in this time of pandemic,” the police chief said in a statement.
