The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) kicked off the celebration of the 27th Police Community Relations (PCR) Month on Monday, July 4.

Quezon City District 6 Rep. Marivic Co-Pilar led the event held at the district’s headquarters in Camp Karingal, Sikatuna Village in the city.

The congresswoman thanked the members of the city police for providing security and peace to the citizens.

“Kasama ang inyong mga asawa, anak, at kamag-anak ay ipinagmalaki po namin kayo sa lahat ng sakripisyo ninyo para sa bayan(Together with your wives, children, and relatives, we are proud of you for all your sacrifices for the country),” the congresswoman said.

“Mas malayo pa ang mararating ng ating programa at polisiya kung tayo ay sama-sama. Kaya hikayatin natin ang iba pang sector na makilahok sa ating mga programa. (Our programs and policies will go even further if we are together. So let’s encourage other sectors to participate in our programs). When the community is involved, we are swift and effective in giving public service,” she added.

The celebration of PCR Month aims to strengthen community participation in crime prevention and forge partnership and community support in peacekeeping and public safety programs of the Philippine National Police (PNP), according to dilg.gov.ph.

During the program, the QCPD recognized various advocacy support groups who helped the police in maintaining peace and order in the city.

The QCPD District Community Affairs Development Division (DCADD), led by Lt. Col. Benjamin Ariola, also launched the Project REMUS (Reliable, Efficient, Meaningful, Unique, Services) that aims to deliver efficient, meaningful and unique service to the community; to educate the people to obey the law and to be advocates of peace and prosperity; and to further increase the community’s perception of QCPD on safety and security.

Co-Pilar and QCPD director Brig. Gen. Remus Medina also distributed health kits to persons under police custody or PUPC during the program.

Medina thanked the congresswoman for attending the program and serving as their guest of honor.

“It is truly an honor to have with us a woman who supports intention to develop closer interaction between the police and the community in handling peace and order concerns,” he said.
