Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Vicente Y. Emano and City Police Director Senior Supt. Gerardo “Gerry” Rosales led other city and police officials during the groundbreaking last June 17, 2011 for the the new headquarters of the Cagayan de Oro Police Office (Cocpo) at the former cemetery along Hayes street, Cagayan de Oro City.
The 1,000 square meter P20.138 million building will rise in close proximity to the Hall of Justice and other local government offices.
The new site is very accessible to the public and is located right at the city proper. Cocpo is currently holding office at the Maharlika Headquarters in Barangay Carmen.
