DAET, Camarines Norte, Apr. 11 (PIA) – More than 120 officers and members of the police advisory councils in the province and municipalities joined the summit and tree planting held at Labo, Convention Center recently.


This was the 1st Provincial and Municipal Advisory Council for Police Transformation and Development (PAC-MAC PTD) summit and tree planting held in the Bicol Region aimed to share good practices and have camaraderie among stakeholders.


During the summit, council officers and members of the province and municipalities were introduced and shared their significant accomplishments like Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signed to enhance public safety and security; tree and vegetable planting; beach clean-up; fund raising and fun walk or “Lakad Para sa Pagbabago”; and construction of perimeter fences of police stations in Daet and Basud.


Among other accomplishments reported were values formation and dialogue for illegal drugs surrenderees, symposium in schools on drug awareness, enhancement seminar/training for the Barangay Peace Keeping Action Teams (BPATs), moral and spiritual upliftment for Labo police personnel, moral and spiritual recovery program for drug surrenderees, Lupong Tagapamayapa seminar workshop and Alternative Learning System (ALS) for drug surrenderees.


PAC Chairperson Provincial Prosecutor Atty. Evillo C. Pormento said that the Philippine National Police (PNP) has a role in peace and order and everyone in the community should help them especially in the campaign against illegal drugs of our President Rodrigo Duterte.


We in the Department of Justice (DOJ) have a role in the judicial system which is to protect the innocent and prosecute those criminals, he said.


The summit is the beginning to speak to one another and to have an open communication because miscommunications resolve to misunderstanding, he said.


In a message of PNP Provincial Director, PSupt. Rudolph B. Dimas which was read by PSupt. Victor E. Abarca, PPSMU chief, he congratulated the advisory councils for being the first in the entire Bicol to conduct the summit.


He encouraged the councils to replicate accomplishments that seem to work in their municipality.


The advisory council is advisory in nature and should be able to function independent of its police unit with the idea of promoting the welfare of the PNP and the community, he said.


On the other hand, Governor Edgardo Tallado said that the province was number one in the Bicol Region in the most numbered drug personalities who surrendered under the anti-drug campaign of the government.


He said that as a father of the province he is a partner to address the drug menace and mentioned that if poverty will not be addressed, crimes will not be resolved.


He said that under his leadership there is development in roads, livelihood and employment that at least lessened poverty in the province.


Labo Mayor Joseph V. Ascutia said that judicial system should be followed in the implementation of laws especially on the part of the policemen.


He said that being members of council we can help in the formulation of policies for the proper implementation of laws in the province.


Meanwhile, a tree planting nearby the venue was joined by the councils after the summit. (MAL/RBM-PIA5/Camarines Norte)
