Early Life & Career Of Bobby Ortega
He started his policing career from 1985 to 1987 when he became the Chief of Police of Baguio wherein which he brought down the city’s crime rate by 95% per cent. He eliminated criminal syndicates in the city. It was rumoured and believed that bobby at that time would give fare money to criminals and tell them to leave the city or else face his wrath and when they realized how serious he is they will flee the city in fear.
The stories of how Bungo cleaned the city of criminality would be re-told over and over by Baguio older folks who would still remember how safe it is to walk around the city without having to fear of snatchers and the halang ang bituka.
