The city government of Puerto Princesa has started the construction of a building that will house police personnel who will be assigned in Barangay Napsan.
 
The Philippine National Police (PNP) building project will cost P19,677,041.79 and will be built by Bonifacio M. Carlos Construction Corporation in 270 days (9 months) using the city’s 20% development fund.
 
The structure has a total floor space of 580 square meters, according to city architect Honesto Teves, with 350 square meters on the first floor and 230 square meters on the second.
 
The station will include an area for Police Information, child and women protection section, four units of prison cell, investigation room, patrol parking and quarters, conference room, administrative and supply office, police community relations office, and Chief of Police office which can also be used as briefing or isolation area, balcony, kitchenette and dining area.
 
The building is similar to the newly-constructed Police Station 2 building in Brgy. Irawan.
 
“Ang paglalagay ng police station ang magbibigay sa  mga mamamayan sa westcoast barangays ng peace of mind, ng feeling of security, na sila ay malaya na magtrabaho ng maayos, paasensohin ang kanilang pamilya,” Mayor Lucilo R. Bayron said in a statement issued by his office via social media.
 
Aside from the construction of the police station, Bayron said there are other projects being lined up for west coast barangays, adding that the area is becoming popular as businessmen have kept coming back there looking for potential investments.
 
Napsan Barangay Captain Gerry Acosta, meanwhile, thanked the city government for the project stating that they are “lucky” to have received such a project.
