ZAMBOANGA CITY -- The Philippine National Police (PNP) got a boost in terms of strength in its anti-terror campaign as 700 volunteers have joined as new members of the Salaam Police Force Multipliers.

Brigadier General Froilan Quidilla, Police Regional Office (PRO) 9 (Zamboanga Peninsula) director, said Thursday the existing strength of the Salaam Police Force Multipliers has increased to 6,700 with the entry of the 700 new volunteers.

Major Karib Muharram, chief of Salaam Police Center, and Imam Solem Hamid, Salaam Police Force Multipliers regional president, officiated the oath-taking of the 700 new volunteers last Saturday, which coincided with the 10th General Assembly of the Salaam Police Force-9 in Sitio Mulu-Muluan, Barangay Mercedes here.

Muharram said PRO-9 continues to organize Salaam volunteers as they recognize the significant contributions of the volunteers to the PNP, particularly in preventing and countering violent extremism and terrorism, crime monitoring, and crime reporting.

He said the Salaam Police Force Multipliers has been a partner of the PRO-9 in maintaining peace and order in the region. PNA
