Sustaining the Effectiveness of Local Peace and Order Councils

 

The promotion of peace and harmony is the concern of everyone. It is a responsibility among the national government, local government units and the private sector. While there are national government instrumentalities tasked to address criminality and other forms of lawlessness, local authorities are equally responsible for maintaining peace and order in their communities as provided for under the general welfare provision (Sec. 16) of the Local Government Code. The participation of the private sector is encouraged in every level.

 

To have a unified and strongly coordinated mechanism in carrying out programs to address the current problems of insurgency, rebellion, criminality, terrorism, or disruption of public order, the peace and order councils have been created at the national, regional, provincial/city, municipal and barangay levels pursuant to EO No. 773. The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is designated as the secretariat of the regional, provincial, city and municipal levels. The secretariat is tasked to handle administrative and technical activities and to undertake liaising and coordination activities with appropriate agencies of the government and other stakeholders.

 

Relative to this, RA 6975 mandates the DILG to promote peace and order and public safety and capacitate LGUs including barangays for the effective delivery of basic service its citizenry.

 

To date, all peace and order councils at all levels in the region have been organized.
