Police Regional Office 7 aired its first weekly live TV show dubbed as "PRO7 Action Files" via the Cebu Catholic Television Network (CCTN) on June 7, 2012. This was made possible after the CCTN Management offered a one (1) hour free weekly slot to PRO7.
The program focuses significant accomplishments, innovations, best practices and other noteworthy programs being initiated by all units and offices of Police Regional Office 7. The segment includes interactive discussions with the invited guest or with the viewers, reporting on accomplishments and activities of the week and information dissemination. Viewers are encouraged to join in the discussion through text messages to accommodate issues and matters concerning peace and order in Central Visayas.
PRO7 is responsible in the preparation of all aspects of the program such as topics to be discussed, invitation of guests and consolidation of materials needed every week. The Chief of the Regional Police Community Relations Division (C, RPCRD) and the Chief of Regional Public Information Office (C, RPIO) will take turn in hosting the program along with Mr. Dennes Tabar, CCTN's regular anchorman and with the assistance of the CCTN production staff.
PCSUPT MARCELO P GARBO JR., PRO7 Regional Director, welcomed this new development noting that this is very timely as it will bridge the gap between the police and the community. He also said that the show sets an important role in preventing crimes, promoting transparency within the organization, maintaining peace and order and rendering quality services to the public.
The "PRO7 Action Files" weekly program which is of national coverage is aired live every Thursday evening from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and replayed on the following day (Friday) from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
