According to a statement issued by PDEA-Negros Occidental, Paduano brought up the “Magna Carta for PDEA Personnel,” which he vowed to support.
Paduano also discussed safety concerns surrounding the provincial office’s location and pledged to provide a safehouse for the operatives, a vehicle, K9 services, and funding for the future construction of a PDEA office building.
He also voiced support proposals for local government units to provide assistance to the provincial office./DGB, WDJ
