MALAYBALAY CITY – Sr. Supt. Rey Crestito Gonzalodo, Bukidnon police director said Saturday agricultural plantations and poultry and hog firms must invest in their own security.

Last week, Gonzalodo urged the business sector not only to hire security guards but also help fund the organization of Special Civilian Armed Forces Geographical Unit (CAFGU) Active Auxiliary (SCAA) to secure their businesses.

He said that though securing the public is their primary responsibility, businessmen must not rely only on what the police and military can provide.“The police and the military cannot be in their properties at all times,” he said.

A group of at least 20 business establishments wrote Local Governments Sec. Jessie Robredo asking for help against violence and extortions targeting them, Gonzalodo, said Saturday.

He said the group talked to Robredo personally in a conference in Caprice Hotel in Cagayan de Oro City last month.

“They are seeking support and assistance against violence and extortions of alleged members of the New People’s Army (NPA) and local bandits for them to continue producing foods for our countrymen,” Gonzalodo said in a text message to Bukidnon News.
