KIANGAN, Ifugao, July 11 (PIA) - - The Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) of the Philippine National Police here   presented its accomplishments for 2016 and 2017 during its third meeting last July 6.

For the 2016, the MAC supported the implementation of the towns’ police best practice called the PAGANGO or Police Action Giving Attention to the Negative Growth of Out-of-School-Youth where the youth were trained in playing music to divert their attention against bad vices and juvenile delinquencies.

Articles on the significant accomplishments and activities of the police were also published in the local paper that improved the image of the police, and at the same time raised their morale as the peace keeping and law enforcement agents of the government.  The council also lobbied with the municipal government to allocate funds for the procurement of one unit desktop computer, digital voice recorder and to support the enactment of the Local Anti-Criminality Action Plan (LACAP).

For 2017, the MAC passed four resolutions namely,   endorsing to the Sangguniang Bayan the adoption of the LACAP into a municipal ordinance,  requesting the Mayor to fund a 2-day Barangay Police Action Team (BPAT) Quick Response Training,  requesting the Mayor to appropriate funds for the installation of accordion steel door at the main door of the Municipal Police Station building,  and requesting the mayor to appropriate funds for the construction of a perimeter fence at the back of the police station.

In this third meeting, the MAC proposed a project for the construction of a perimeter fence in front of the police station building, installation of perimeter spotlights and the construction of an Advance Control Post beside the police station building.

It was reported that the LACAP was already approved by the SB and it was forwarded to the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Ifugao for   review and approval.

The MAC   was organized in 2014 in line with Performance Governance System (PGS) of   the PNP which   requires that a multi-sectoral governance council or advisory group be established composed of sectoral leaders or individuals to support the PNP in the successful implementation and monitoring of its strategic transformation roadmap called PNP PATROL (Police Agenda for Transformation and the Rule of Law) Plan 2030.

The PGS  has four stages namely,   the Initiation Stage which is the formation of the technical working group, establishment of the MAC and the formulation of the governance scorecard;  Compliance Stage that involves the formalization of the MAC, cascading of views and strategies down to the individual level and the aligning of budget;  Proficiency Stage which is the analysis and examination strategy execution, a fully functional Police Strategic Management Unit (PMSU) and the regular monitoring and review of strategies, and  Institutionalization Stage.

One of the key areas to be audited by the PSMU is the MAC members’ contributions or accomplishments for the effective implementation of the PGS and assistance to the police in the generation of resources in order to support and sustain its present and future plans and programs.

 With these accomplishments, the MAC is hopeful that the Kiangan PNP will move to the next stage of the PGS which is the Proficiency Stage. (JDP/DBC- PIA CAR, Ifugao)
