Iloilo City does not have enough policemen, Mayor Jerry Treñas said.

Treñas is requesting Department of Interior Secretary Benjamin Abalos for additional deployment.

He believes that a city of around 500,000 people should have 1,000 police officers, the mayor said. (

Treñas admitted he is not satisfied with the performance of the local police, particularly in the campaign against illegal drugs.

A minimum of P50 million is annually allotted by the city government to the city police for police patrol cars, firearms and ammunition.
