CALOOCAN CITY – The Caloocan City government has once again brought home the bacon after receiving an award from the government.
The Caloocan Peace and Order Council (POC) won second place in the Local Peace and Order Council Performance Audit 2017, while the Caloocan Anti-Drug Abuse Council (CADAC) bagged the same award in the City/Municipality Anti-Drug Abuse Council Functionality Audit 2017.
The Department of Interior and Local Government conferred the recognition to the Caloocan POC after it satisfactorily complied with its criteria.
Among the criteria met include the organization of a local peace and order council; administration of regular meetings for the POC; formulation of policies, plans, and corresponding budget; timely submission of reports, and proper documentation of the peace and order and public safety activities.
Meanwhile the city’s ant-drug council bagged the award for the regular conduct of meetings; proper allocation of funds; implementation of its plans and programs; support to component barangay anti-drug abuse council; and innovations.
“We thank the Department of Interior and Local Government for once again recognizing our efforts. This time in drafting policies to maintain peace and order in Caloocan and in creating plans and programs to make Caloocan a drug-free city,” Caloocan City Mayor Oscar Malapitan said.
