Police, communities work together to fight criminality, says Palace August 20, 2014
MalacaƱang made an assurance on Wednesday that the government continues to work to protect the public against crimes.

A recent spate of crimes, such as robberies, assault and the killing and rape of a 23-year old woman in Bulacan, have raised concerns about the people’s security.

In a press briefing at the Palace, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. said one of the strategies of the police is to work with communities.
“Patuloy ang pagkilos ng ating pamahalaan para tiyakin ang kaligtasan at kapanatagan ng ating mga mamamayan. Isa sa mga mahahalagang elemento dito ay ang pakikipag-ugnayan ng kapulisan sa mga komunidad,” Coloma told reporters.

He said it is a proven strategy that when the police and the people work together, they can prevent crimes.

When the citizens and the police work together, authorities can easily monitor the movement of people, he explained, adding that the people must always be vigilant to catch criminals.

Another government strategy is the systematic registration of firearms to address the proliferation of loose guns that often end up in the hands of criminals, the Communications Secretary said.

“Bahagi din diyan ang pagbibigay ng sapat na kagamitan at modernong equipment sa ating kapulisan na magagamit nila sa investigation, crime detection, at crime prevention,” he said.

Fixing the country’s criminal justice system is also a major thrust in fighting criminality, Coloma said, adding that a lengthy trial that leads to the acquittal of suspects gives criminals more confidence in violating the law.

“At isa rin ‘yang dahilan kung bakit mayroon tayong security, peace and justice cluster, dahil nga magkakaugnay ang mga suliraning kinakaharap ng iba’t ibang kagawaran,” he added.

The national and local governments are also working together to fight crime in the country, Coloma noted.
