With regards to this explosion of dynamite in lapinigan. I applaud the claver police department for doing their job. it is about time that the claver police department will implement the law cause there are lots of unsolved crimes in claver. there is fear among the people of claver. we need the support of our local goverment to let the people know that there is no such thing that anybody will be above the law of the land.

I applaud the claver police department for the job well done. clavernons have feelings of fear secondary to unsolved crimes for the past years. it is about time that these police officers will do something to maintain peace and order in claver so people of claver will respect them. Kudos to all of you . my suggestions to the incoming or incombent local goverment is to modernize our police department and give them an armored car instead of a cadillacad as what they are doing now ,by the time they arrive at the seen of the crime the person or persons are already dead or had escaped. claver is a rich town we can provide all this if the LGU will work together for the good of claver.
