Social Sector: Protective Services

The information contained in this article were based on the Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) of Rosario, Batangas for the planning period 2000-2010 and were current in 1999 except in places where updates were duly noted.

THIS SOCIO-ECONOMIC PROFILE reports about three major sectors including the Social Sector, the Economic Sector and Infrastructure and Utilities Sector. The Social Sector consists of the following sub-sectors: housing, health, education, protective services, social welfare services, and sports and recreation. This article covers the Protective Services Sub-Sector.

Rosario Philippine National Police Force
The Rosario Philippine National Police Force (PNP) with headquarters located within the Municipal Hall compound at Barangay Poblacion B is providing protective services. It occupies an area of about 280 square meters. It has “Cops on the Block” outpost at Barangay Poblacion C and traffic outpost at Barangay Poblacion D. Fire protection headquarters is at Barangay Poblacion E with 1,022 square meters.

There are total of 33 policemen assigned to the headquarters, outpost and traffic outpost. With the current population of 82,115, the policeman to population ratio is 1: 2,488. Said ratio is very much below that of the standard 1 policemen for every 1,000 population.

Rosario PNP is being assisted in their peace and order keeping job by volunteers such as the “PRIMO” or the reserved officers of the Philippine Armed Forces with 4 active members; an Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army with 53 organic personnel and 94 CAFGU members at Barangay Puting Kahoy and the 402nd Police Mobile Force Group of the PNP at Barangay Masaya with 70 personnel.

Barangay Tanod
As of December 1999, there are a total of 400 barangay tanods in the municipality. Barangay Mayuro, Alupay, San Carlos, Lumbangan, Bulihan and Natu, Pinagsibaan and San Roque has the most number of barangay tanod. Barangay Poblacion B, Leviste, Mabunga Nasi, and Salao have no reported Barangay Tanod. All other barangays have on average of at least 6 tanods.

Crime Incidence
Crime incidence reports show that for the last five years from 1995 to 1999, physical injuries is the most indexed crime and 1997 is the year with the most crime indexed. There are a total of 140 non-index crime reported for the last five years.

Index crimes include murder, homicide, physical injuries, robbery, theft and rape. Non-index crimes include Violation of special laws like PD 1866, PD 1602, RA 6425 and others.

Fire Department
There are 6 personnel in the fire department of the municipality including its chief. The duty or schedule of these personnel is as follows from Monday to Friday:

  • 8:00 a.m. 5:00 p.m. shift: 1 chief and 3 firemen

  • 5:00 p.m. 7:00 a.m. shift: 2 firemen
With the current population of 82, 115, the fireman to population ratio is 1: 13,686. This is also very much below the standard of 1 firemen per 2,000 population.

Considering the standard ratios of policemen and firemen to population, there are still current needs for said personnel. The presence force in terms of policemen is short of 49 police and 35 firemen. For the requirement within the planning period, it is projected that the municipality will need a total of 106 policemen and 53 firemen by year 2010.

Improvements in terms of office area and equipment are also necessary. Upgrading of skills in terms of training of existing force is also needed. Priorities along these lines are recommended.
