– A new chief has settled in to head the PNP force in the town in the person of PINSP Mercedarious C Balabat III.
PINSP Balabat is not new to the town. He was assigned at the PNP Jagna twice in 2006 and 2008. He studied his elementary at the Naatang Elementary School and his high school at the Central Visayan Institute (CVI) now Central Visayan Institute Foundation (CVIF).
His familiarity to Jagna is seen as an advantage.
Mayor Fortunato Abrenilla welcomed the new PNP chief. He said he is glad to be working with someone who has familiarity to the town. He is expecting more visibility from the police force as well as work in coordination with the PNP in maintaining a peaceful and crime free Jagna.
Inspector Mercedarious Balabat is married to Ana Fe Balabat. They have four children.
