“There are so many investors coming because we are a peace-loving province. Here, their investments are assured. We have a peaceful place to invest in,” Marañon said during the New Year’s call of the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office held at the Capitol.

The politiko also recognized the efforts of the provincial police force in maintaining the peace and order.

“Allow me to thank each and every one of you, on behalf of the province, for a job well done. Our beloved province of Negros Occidental compared to other provinces is relatively peaceful. We don’t have much crime because of your efforts,” he added.

Marañon encouraged the police not to rest on their laurels and remain on the forefront of law enforcement.
