Mayor Michael Rama will double the monthly allowance of police officers in Cebu City from P2,500 to P5,000.

Lieutenant Colonel Wilbert Parilla, deputy city director for administration of the Cebu City Police Office, said Rama already requested the City Council to include in their budget for next year the increase in allowance of the police.

This will motivate their men to work even harder, according to Parilla. (

“Yes this is a big help considering the P5,000 (increase) for our personnel can already buy two sacks of rice,” he said in the vernacular.

Police Regional Office 7 (PRO 7) Director Brigadier General Roderick Augustus Alba said Rama also pledged to raise the allowance of PRO 7 personnel in the future.
