To further strengthen and boost the tourism industry of the city, the City Tourism Office, in collaboration with the Olongapo City Police Office (OCPO) conducted a two-day ‘Tourist Police Seminar’ held on July 10 and 11 at the function room Olongapo City Convention Center. The seminar was participated in by twenty seven (27) of the elite policemen of the OCPO.

Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr., Vice Mayor Cynthia Cajudo, City Councilor Gina Perez, and OCPO Deputy Director Roderick D. Minong, who stood in for OCPO Director Abelardo Villacorta, graced the seminar with their presence.

The main objective of the seminar was to arm the policemen with vital information on how to strengthen peace and order in tourist zones and update their knowledge regarding the city and its tourism industry.

Councilor Perez, chair of the City Council Task Force on Tourism, facilitated the modules and workshops which included lectures on communication, customer service and information regarding the hotels, facilities and other amenities and places that tourists might want to know about.

The important facts about Olongapo City were also discussed including its history, the various awards the city has won, its best practices and all the important landmarks. This information will be essential when the policemen are assisting tourists who want to know the city better.

“Isang mahalagang industriya ng lungsod ang tourism. Lalo pa nating palakasin ang peace and order at pagpoprotekta ng mga turista at bigyan sila ng useful at vital information tungkol sa Olongapo. Dapat lagi tayong magalang kapag nakikitungo mga sa turista para mahikayat silang bumalik dito sa Olongapo!” Mayor Gordon said.

The seminar also aims to prepare the policemen who will be deployed at tourist police stations located in the major parts of the city frequented by tourists: Ramon Magsaysay Drive (RM Drive), Olongapo City Public Market, Ulo ng Apo Rotonda and Barangay Baretto.
