Dinagat Municipal Police Station

The word Dinagat was named by a stranger reached the place in search of greener pastures. He approached a native and asked him what the inhabitants do for a living, and he answered that they farm and fish to live. His interest in fishing prompted him to inquire where the fish, and he replied and pointed to a place, saying in this native tongue, “DINHI NIINI NA DAGAT”, which when translated in English means, here, from this bountiful seawaters. The stranger thereafter called the place Dinagat. Since then and until now the name Dinagat has not change.
