PNP and the government of QC signed an agreement to advance efforts to maintain peace and order.
A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed on Monday by the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Quezon City government, and members of the religious community to reinforce the execution of the police force’s “Kasimbayanan” (Kapulisan, Simbahan, at Pamayanan) program.
Mayor Joy Belmonte, the Police commander Gen. Rodolfo Azurin Jr., and Pastor Oliver Lee participated in informal ceremonies at Quezon City Hall to sign the agreement and lead the pledge of support for the campaign.
The resurrected “Kasimbayanan” campaign, according to Azurin, attempts to enlist volunteers and church leaders to assist close the gap between the public and the police.
He added that the initiative also aims to organize the neighborhood as peace champions and to guarantee that every resident is a law-abiding citizen through spiritual direction from church leaders.
“This will be our display window in our community program, where our goal is to lessen crime in Quezon City. We’ll cut down on drug demand and keep up the pressure on criminal activity, notably the spread of illegal narcotics, which is very helpful to the police force. The first to invite us to the launch and signing of a memorandum of agreement was Quezon City. The Quezon City government is taking its commitment to making the city one of the most forward-thinking in the nation seriously, as seen by the fact that they have included the Kasimbayanan program in their budget, Azurin told reporters.
In accordance with the MOU, church leaders and the PNP will cooperate to advance peace and order, notably in combating crime, drug misuse, and other social issues in the neighborhood.
The pact also intends to improve public safety services for citizens by strengthening the alliance between the PNP and local government entities in Quezon City.
“Investors will come and establish businesses in our city when it is viewed as tranquil and orderly, which creates job possibilities for the residents and boosts the local economy. That is the course we intend to follow, creating a developed and innovative Quezon City for all Filipinos, not just those who live there, Azurin continued.
Brig. Gen. Nicolas Torre III, the director of the Quezon City Police District (QCPD), congratulated Azurin for attending the event.
This initiative, according to Torre, “aims to deepen the PNP’s relationship with the community and raise awareness of shared responsibility in contributing to peace, order, and progress—even holistic social transformation.”
Belmonte, on the other hand, asserted that she thinks it is crucial for the police, the community, and the church to work together to combat the problem of drug addiction as well as other crimes.
“We acknowledge the crucial part played by our religious leaders in fostering harmony and peace in our neighborhood. In order to ensure the safety and security of our citizens here in Quezon City, we can make use of the strengths and resources of many sectors thanks to this collaboration. The Kasimbayanan initiative is being strengthened with the help of the Quezon City government, which is also supported by the Church. Belmonte stated, “We are prepared to assist in enhancing the relationship between the police, barangay, and church.***
